Welcome to Ms. Gifford's Classroom Page
theme for the year is empathy: empathy for ourselves as learners, for
our classmates, and for those we discover in our reading and writing. Reading,
writing, listening, and speaking will be the tools we use to build these
bridges of empathy. Words connect us with others, allowing us to see things
from another perspective. As we read articles and books, write our own stories
and papers, and share our thinking with each other, we will grow as both
language arts students and people of empathy!
