Welcome to 7C ELA: Reading/Writing Workshop!

Happy back to school!! Today turned out to be a successful start to the year. Students met all of their teachers and received important information about each of their classes as well as 7C Cluster Policies & Procedures.

The rest of the week we’ll be focusing on building routines and rituals within our workshop classroom, and everyone will have a chance to get to know the other learners in our community.
