    All of Mrs. McAuliffe's ELA Workshop students will have access to class lessons in our Google Classroom. All printed classwork and Action magazines will be kept in their core class binder in an "ELA Workshop" section. He or she will be able to participate in class whether we are in-person
    or if a student missed a class assignment because each student has this section in their binder and our Google Classroom.
    Bonus! We meet in the Weber Library every Friday. You have an opportunity to explore and read books during class!
                                             Welcome to ELA Workshop!
          You are never an island or a little boat alone in the vast ocean....I am always here to help you.  All you need is your great attitude, motivation, effort, and an understanding that everyone always needs help.  It helps to check Google Classroom and leave me a comment, too.  I'm really not a mind reader, I just pretend to be :D
     Stop monkeying around!
    Say What?

    monkey'in around

    You say: "I hate to read!"

    I say: "You don't hate to read...you hate to be told what to read! When you find an author or genre that you like...that you chose by yourself...you will find that
    reading is something to LOVE!"  Perhaps these words of wisdom from Willy Wonka will help you understand why reading is important:

                       Oompa Loompa doompadee doo, I've got another puzzle for you

    music notes Oompa Loompa doompadah dee, If you are wise you'll listen to me! What do you get from a glut of TV? A pain in the neck and an IQ of threeWhy don't you try simply reading a book? Or could you just not bear to look?  You'll get no, you'll get no,

          you'll get no you'll get no...You'll get no commercials!

       I am always available for you. Email me if you need suggestions,help, and/or just to chat!
