So excited to join Saturday Celebrations with Ruth Ayres!
It is fun to live my week thinking about what I will celebrate on Saturday.
A week filled with moments to celebrate and remember!
1. Thanks to Julie Johnson's post about the Poetry Box Project, I threw my hat into the ring and received this email on Sunday from Kevin Cordi:
"Dear Story Ambassadors,
I want to inform you that you have been
selected to receive the Children's Poetry StoryBox at your school and/or
community. We know that you will be a great StoryBox Ambassador as
kids and adults are encouraged to finish the poetry of National
Children's Poets. J. Patrick Lewis and myself are overjoyed with the
response to the invitation..."
Thanks, Julie, for writing about this opportunity on Celebrate Saturday. I'm thrilled to be a part of this project!
2. We had snow on Saturday night and Sunday. The kids loved a day to play in the snow, and it was sufficiently melted by Monday that we didn't even need a late start. I know many of you are tired of the snow, but it was our first real snow this winter. I loved enjoying the day from inside my cozy home.
3. I picked up the cold that's been circulating at my school and in my classroom. I'm celebrating that I have this next week off for mid-winter break, so I'll have plenty of time to rest and recuperate and no sub plans to write!
