Mrs. Magan Thomas
Born and raised in South Carolina, I spent over 15 years in professional book publishing and writing before becoming an English Language Arts (ELA) teacher. I live in Goose Creek with my husband and my 5-year old daughter, and I am excited to teach your child!
On the next page you'll find some useful resources and the description of our first quarter Reading Response Project. You'll also find "Stems" lists, and "stems" are roots of words that we learn and memorize to help build vocabulary. We test on one list at a time, but I've provided the year's full of lists for your reference. I've also provided an extra copy of our Weeky Reading Log (your student's only homework assignment for me), and I'll begin putting class notes there as well very soon.
I'll keep announcements on this Welcome page to cover national contests for writing and illustration, upcoming literary festivals, and anything else language arts related that I hope your student will find interesting outside of class.
