  1. Hello Mr. Webb and students!
    We are so glad you will be sharing our work in your classroom 🙂 That’s exciting!
    We also like to view and discuss “mentor texts” to help us with our learning. It’s always great to have some examples to inspire us.

    If you would like to see more student posts with great voice, check out the following from earlier this year:

    We are in our last week of school now. Only four more days til summer vacation! We won’t have classes again until August 22 🙂

    That’s a great idea for a post and would really make people think about the audience and the purpose of writing. I am always looking for fantastic practical examples that we could use to enhance the students writing (with my class of students here in New Zealand) so we are going to ahem, ‘borrow’ this post (if that’s alright of course) and then piggy back it onto our students work this week.
