Well done Mary! I have been using the term FANBOYS with my students since tech camp! Every time one of us says FANBOYS everyone claps because I told them FANBOYS make their writing more interesting and the "fans" have to clap!
I also have my students create posters on areas where they are having trouble. Students take ownership and others remember it too. Our poster of "there, their, and they're" is also known as Sarah's poster.
Keep up the great blogs!
