Sixth graders at Webb began an Independent Writing Project this year under the direction of Ms. Wynne. The idea came in part from Google's practice with their employees who are are given 20% of their work week to devote themselves to an independent project that is company related. Students began by exploring a range of writing genres and finally settled on their own to try out. They are studying mentor texts, researching, drafting, and collaborating with other writers. They are creating everything from cook books to sports casts- from fantasy novels to children's books. While some students recently published their first round and are moving onto a new project, others are carrying out their writing project for the entirety of the school year. This sample is a video clip, that was made entirely by three sixth graders, that broadcasts their writing. Enjoy!
National Reading Day at Hanmer Elementary School
We had over 145 students attend the first ever after school Movie Time at Webb! The movie showing of INSIDE OUT concentrated on emotions and self-regulation. We have been focusing on this topic a lot through our Yoga4Classrooms program. The event had a great turnout of students and staff. In fact, even Joy and the Webb Wildcat made an appearance. We are looking forward to future Movie Times at Webb!
