Wow, wow, wow! We wrote about 170,000 words as a grade in the month of November.
Using the 63 responses to the NaNoWriMo Final Count Form, I determined these rankings:
5th place: Section 1 with 17,880 words
4th place: Section 6 with 29,552 words
3rd place: Section 5 with 35,015 words
2nd place: Section 7 with 36,421 words
AND 1ST PLACE: SECTION 2 WITH 49,450 WORDS!
Another set of stats…
Section 1: 9 students wrote over 1000 words!
Section 2: 12 students wrote over 1000 words!
Section 5: 11 students wrote over 1000 words!
Section 6: 11 students wrote over 1000 words!
Section 7: 14 students wrote over 1000 words!
Way to go! Everyone should be very proud of themselves. The vast majority of students said that they spent more time writing in November than they usually do, and that was ultimately our goal: to spend time writing.
Quite a few students said they intend to continue working on their writing projects, too! That’s super cool!
