Thank you, Corbett.  I want to share with you that I recently completed parent/student/teacher conferences with my 27 homeroom students.  One of the questions I asked each student was:  What is a highlight of your day as a 7th grader and at least a dozen students replied:  "Sacred Writing Time."  This response warmed my heart.

Just curious,

What does EGOT stand for?

Thanks,

Teresa

new to the site.  I was just enjoying Stickman. I'm totally stealing the idea and hoping to find great ideas for 1st and 2nd grade students. I teach 1st, 2nd & 3rd grade students with learning disabilities.

Hi Corbett! I just have a scheduling question. I teach 6th grade language arts and will have each class for 55 minutes a day. I know I'll start each day with the 10 minute write, but I need help with how to fit grammar, writing, and core novels. I.e, time break up/days of week. Any help would be appreciated. Lastly, all of 6th grade LA uses 5 subject notebooks. How would you divide the sections?

Thanks so much!

Hi Corbett,

I am interested in purchasing the Sacred Writing Time slides to use this coming 2014-15 school year. I have a question, are the slides updated each year? Are the 2014-15 slides different than the 2013-14 slides? Will I have to re-purchase them each year?

Thanks for your help.

Hi Corbett,

I have been reviewing a lot of material that you have posted.  Wow!!!!  As usual, I am having a difficult time making a decision, however, I have made one. 

I am wanting to do the "Giving Hands & Taking Hands" project.  I have one question: you refer to the song "Brave".  As I am not familiar with this song could you please identify the artist?  Thanks so much. 

Here's looking forward to a great school year!

Hi Corbett!  I haven't heard anything else from you since I responded back in July to let you know you could quote me.  I am VERY excited to receive the two new products & wondered when they would be available to download.  NO PRESSURE - - I'm just excited!  :D  I go back to school tomorrow, and the kids come August 19th.  Where did the summer go??  Thanks again for all the hard work you and your wife do to make us better teachers!  The kids definitely benefit, and hopefully leave our classrooms lovers of reading and writing!  :)
