    Where did January go? It has been a busy time of writing and using technology in my classroom this month. I began the month with goal setting and used Daniel Pink's Drive exercise that we did in December to allow my students to write a sentence about themselves and their future.

    We also began an enrichment class after school to implement Writing for Change. We have used Wordle in creating notebook covers with words that relate to each students ideas and love of writing and we used Image Chef to create "I Love " poems. It is great to be able to work with students who are passionate about their writing. I can't wait to do more innovative things using technology to enhance these students amazing writing.
