31 Days of Writing!
Hosted at the Two Writing Teachers


It’s Time

This has been a long week of meetings and professional development… more tomorrow afternoon.

I’m hopeful of this new learning and what it means for our community of learners – students and teachers.  It’s time.

I appreciate how these exciting messages align with my beliefs and I welcome the challenge to the status quo.  It’s time.

My head is full of information and adult talk.  I need to spend time in my thoughts and reflect on everything going on in my teacher brain.  It’s time.

I am anxious to apply this more powerful, deeper learning with my readers, writers, and thinkers.  It’s time.

But first, it’s spring break.  It’s time.


I Celebrate This Week – 4.4.15



It’s the end of another week.  Looking back, there is a so much to celebrate.

I celebrate this week.  This week ended the 8th Annual Slice of Life Story Challenge.  This was my first March participating in the challenge.  I celebrate that I wrote every day in March!  All. 31. days!

I celebrate this week.  I am back to school after a week of relaxation, reflection, and time away.  I missed my readers, writers, and thinkers!  I celebrate that we are back to the literacy routine in our classroom!

I celebrate this week.  After weeks of stress and struggle, B and E have Ice Show solo costumes (always my biggest challenge!). I celebrate that their dresses are ready for a weekend full of performances!

I celebrate this week.  ACT scores arrived in the mail this week for B.  This means that going to college and the possibility of leaving home will come sooner than we think. I celebrate that she is excited about continuing her learning journey!

I celebrate this week.  This has been a week of much debate and deliberation at our house.  Our E has gone on her first “date” as she calls it.  Her dad and I call it a group gathering at the movies.  I celebrate that we all survived!

This week is over, but the celebrations remain and will be joined by the celebrations of another week yet to come.
