SOLSC March 1st - Starting Strong

Welcome to Max and Kam's Class Blog! We are a group of 6th-8th grade students at The Logan School for Creative Learning in Denver, Colorado. Logan is a K-8 independent school that has an emphasis on individual units and experiential learning. You can check out the school's website at

This is the second year we are participating in the SOLSC. Last year, nine of twenty-three students in the class wrote and linked up each day in March with all students linking up at least 25/31 days! We will see what this year holds in store.

We are looking forward to hearing your comments on our blogs and reading what students, teachers and writers from around the world write as well. Welcome and enjoy!

Read First! Book Blog February 24, 2015

Happy Snow everyone! Hopefully you all had wonderful breaks after your hard work before and during Expo! Kam and I could not be more proud of you!  I really enjoyed the snow over the weekend and as I write this I wonder what the chances are for a snow day Monday? I doubt it, but you never know. Can't wait to see you this week and get going on new units among many other projects!

For your Book Blog this week:

1) Write a paragraph about how you choose a book and if that has changed over the school year.

2) Recommend your favorite book to the class

3) Write a review of the book you read during Expo week or over break (The normal part of the book blog).

4) List the next 3-5 book you would like to read.

FYI - The Slice of Life Challenge starts Sunday! We'll talk more about it in class!
