Smaller classes top this week's celebrations!

                                   So excited to join Saturday Celebrations with Ruth Ayres! 
                       It is fun to live my week thinking about what I will celebrate on Saturday.
Discover. Play. Build.
                                  A week filled with moments to celebrate and remember!

One:  The Seahawks Victory Parade on Wednesday in downtown Seattle meant that approximately 1/2 of my students were absent from every class.  My students who came to school on Wednesday enjoyed smaller classes, tickets for cookie bars, and leftover chips and pretzels from our Newbery celebration the previous week.  

Two:  I won the drawing sponsored by our Social Committee at Wednesday's District Directed meeting - a $25 gift card to Shell!

Three:  I attended a poetry writing workshop this afternoon sponsored by Nathan Cummings, a local senior who is one of five National Student Poets.  We wrote exquisite corpse poetry and created beat poems from song lyrics.   I can't wait to invite him into my classroom for our poetry unit.  


  1. Congratulations on your big win! We were hoping for those victory celebrations in Denver :(((

  2. Congrats on that big win out there! Next week things will settle down and be more normal I suspect!

  3. Oh, that's funny that so many of your students were gone. Congrats on the win and for the small classes. :-)

  4. Congratulations on winning and having fun in a poetry workshop too.

  5. I love catching up on your corner of the world through celebrations. I'm glad you keep writing.
