Hello class! I am excited to announce that we will be participating in a writing opportunity hosted by WCR.
For the next few weeks, we will be working on our stories.
We will submit our stories as a class by February 26th and to hopefully get selected for April, May, or June’s article.


First, we will brainstorm about our memorable events.

What is a story?

What components are included in a story?

Stories are important. Stories are shared with and passed down to our friends, peers, and families.

Stories are made up of significant events, experiences, places, and/or people.

In class today, we brainstormed a list of important experiences. 

  1. Please complete a list of 7 events/memories that were memorable to communicate the importance of a story.
  • (3) important school experiences that you participated in
  • (3) important valuable events or family experiences
  • (1) class experience you would like to share


Second, we will narrow down our ideas and choose ONE story to write about.

2.  We will be using a Power Paragraph writing tool to help us organizeSee the link below for the Power Paragraph writing tool document.

The Westcoast Reader: Family Literacy Week Contest 2021 

Maywood Community School Submission – January 29, 2021

My students have worked hard in their English-language learning, making the most of the pandemic, and are excited to participate in WCR’s Family Literacy Week 2021 Contest! 🙂 

Here are three of our literacy goals if we were to win the literacy contest:

1) To learn more about the world.

2) To enjoy reading more as a community.

3) To purchase new books.

As a community, we strive to be S.T.A.R. learners, “Safe, Thoughtful, Accepting, Respectful”
We submitted our photos today! Wish us luck.
A big thank you to the Westcoast Reader for hosting the contest and bringing spirit to our local communities!
