Last year a student from Saranac Lake Middle School won honorable mention in this contest, so here's hoping we'll have similar success this time around.

Last week students continued reading, discussing the work of Edgar Allan Poe and looked at the literary devices "mood" and "tone."
They wrote in their journals about "favorite childhood toys" and "fall."
Students had another bout with Vocabulary.com (a new Champ will be crowned this week!).
We also spent some time working on a combined social studies/ELA project on local history (students were inspired by watching this episode of Curiously Adirondack; this one too.
This week we'll look at some poetry ahead of students writing their own local history poem, then write drafts in class.
The end of the week will see a visit from Mrs. Kennedy for book talks.
