Welcome to Thaler Scholars!

We are eighth grade English students who will be publishing our work this year on this class blog. We are using pseudonyms to protect our anonymity.

So far, we have written I Am From poems, journal entries, and conversation transcripts. More writing to come. Stay tuned!

Please leave us constructive comments to let us know what you think!

These poems are AMAZING! I'm overwhelmed by their beauty and the images that come to mind reading them. I can't wait to read whatever else you guys write--keep it coming!

For all of the Thaler Scholars:
What incredible imagery! So difficult to comment on just one or two poems because there's something rich in every one of them. A beautiful point of reflection on the individual gifts our young people have to offer the world! It is a privelege to hear your voices . . . .

this poem/get to know you exercise is terrific and the students really rose to the occasion! I loved it so much that I used it in my creative writing classes with 3rd,4th and 5th graders!

Rock ( and write ) on Ms. Thaler's class!!
