Reading and Writing Our Way Forward
During the month of May, 501 and 502 began keeping interactive class journals. The purpose of this activity was to encourage conversations with each other through writing. We noticed that students were missing each other and this felt like a great opportunity to continue our relationships and join the #InwoodWrites initiative. Each day, students receive a new prompt to reflect on. Some of the prompts are specific to our experiences at this time. Through our journals, students are able to share what is on their mind and hear from each other. This is helping us stay connected while we are apart! I feel very grateful that so many students are willing to share what is on their mind with us and I look forward to reading their writing every day.
For our blog feature, we decided to highlight a few students who had inspiring responses to the following prompt:
If you could have any superpower during this time, what would it be and why?
If I could have any superpower during this time, it would be to have the power to heal and stop COVID-19 from spreading. One of the reasons is because I don’t want my friends and family to lose their loved ones. A second reason is because I miss seeing my teachers, friends and family. I miss having a normal life and having the freedom to go out and play. That is why I chose my healing superpower.

If I were to have any superpower, it would be to find a cure to deadly diseases. I would want that super power because I want to save a lot of people’s lives. I just want to help a lot of people because a number of people are dying. I know that I wouldn’t want someone in my family to get sick or die. For example, I would want to find a cure for COVID 19 to save a lot of people. Or like the new cure that has been getting a lot of kids sick. I also would want to find the cure for that too because I really like helping people because it makes me happy.

If I had to have power during this time, my superpower would be to be invincible. Because it would be really good to be invincible that way you don't get sick. Also, imagine how useful I could be if I couldn't get sick. Plus, it would be really helpful because I could help people get food and give people masks without worrying about getting sick. In conclusion, I would be doing a lot for others and I'm helping people.
