Barnes Class Home

Another school year has arrived. The first week has come and gone and students are learning about book genres and are already checking out books from our vast library. Soon they will have their own web sites, blogs and be members of the amazing Goodreads community. This promises to be a wonderful year, filled with team collaboration and wonder. 

Easy video instruction: Check out our latest video about the online book community site, Goodreads.




Remember, if you're ever having a problem with your web page or this site, e-mail me at Also, students can contact me on our message board at the For Mr. Barnes Only forum topic.  Only you and I can see these posts.  


Check in regularly for new features, like this Brain Quest widget to the right or other interactive gadgets below.
