Last Winner of the 200 Follower Mega Giveaway! and CCSS Writing Standards

The final winner for my 200 follower mega giveaway is....

 Allie Elliot!!

 I haven't been blogging for this entire last week. We have finally hit the time of year where the to-do lists aren't getting any shorter despite chipping away at them hard.

 C'est la vie.
I tell you, I am fired up about the 4th grade writing standards. First of all, I'm not daunted by them because I have no prior knowledge of what was expected before the CCSS. Secondly, it's such a brave new world after teaching first grade writing! This is the wow factor, I tell you.

I have been working on some ways to sneak in persuasive writing. Persuasive writing is so exciting, so dynamic, and so worthy of learning how to to well. Keep your eyes open for some exciting things rolling out of P&P.

I hope everyone out there is feeling healthy! The virus train has struck our house and classrooms. Blech.
