High Five, Mallory

September 16th, 2016

Hi Everybody,

Hope the school year is off to a great start for all of you.  Mallory is now in 5th grade and there is a lot of drama as a new school year gets underway.

Mallory is excited to start fifth grade. She just got a cell phone, and Mary Ann’s in her class. What could go wrong? For one thing, she gets off on the wrong foot with her new teacher. For another, Mary Ann seems to be avoiding her and spending all her time with their classmate Zoe. And then there’s Mallory’s book report assignment. Instead of Mary Ann, her partner is the new kid, Devon. Is fifth grade going to be a disaster, a fun adventure, or a little of both?

High Five, Mallory!

Have fun reading High Five, Mallory.

Talk to you soon!

Hi Everyone,

I’m super excited to announce that I am now teaching writing workshops to 2nd-5th graders at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Day School in Coconut Grove, Florida. Last week we talked about finding creative inspiration and writing persuasive letters. Next week, it’s on to creating memorable characters. It’s going to be a fun-filled year with so many smart students and great writers!

Stay tuned for more!

Talk to you soon,

Hi Everybody,

It’s that time of year . . . back to school! It’s hard to leave summer behind, but it’s always exciting to see what the new year has to offer.  Good luck to all of you as you head back! And if you’re looking for some fun back to school reading, check out Back to School, Mallory.  When Mallory starts third grade at a new school, there’s never a dull moment. Have fun reading and going back to school.
