Hello, writers and teachers,
Happy 2013! It's time to get back to writing awesome paragraphs, stories, and essays.
Let's start the new year by writing a free-write on either the one thing you enjoy the most about school or the one thing you enjoy the least. Let your ideas flow and have fun. Add a little humor, if possible. You don't need to follow any rules
-- just write. You don't need to show your free-write to anyone -- it's just for you. Write just for the pleasure of expressing your thoughts and feelings on paper.
Didn't that feel good?
Now let's get back to cooking with words. You have one task pending from before Christmas break. You need to write the lovely final draft of your expository essay:
1- Take a last look at your revisions.
2- Read the essay aloud.
3- Make final improvements.
4- Write or type a clean, final copy.
5- Share your essay with others - be proud of your accomplishment!

Are you tired of the same old boring school sandwiches? Try one of the following combinations on your favorite sandwich bread:
1- pesto with turkey, lettuce, and tomato
2- hummus with turkey and baby spinach
3- cranberry or raspberry preserves with turkey and baby spinach
Or be creative and design your own interesting combination! :)
