First of all, I’d like to thank everyone who took the time to vote in our Goodbye to Cliches Contest. I can’t tell you how much my students and I appreciated every vote…all 198 of them! I especially loved seeing votes coming in from three different continents, places like Colombia, Saskatchewan, and Australia!
But, without further ado…here is the presentation I created to share with the seventh graders which sentences were voted by you as being Smarties worthy. Enjoy!
Do you have one or two minutes to help me determine the winners in our Goodbye to Cliches contest? Last week I had my seventh graders rewrite some tired old lines and now we need your help to determine who gets the Smarties. I would really appreciate it if you, dear reader, could take just a moment and complete this form: Goodbye to Cliches Contest. And feel free to pass this along to all your friends and family members!
Please note: This contest ends Thursday at midnight (PST). Winners will be announced on this blog on Friday, January 17th.
Thanks for your help!
You know it’s going to be a great first day back at school when God welcomes you back in a blaze of glory!
