So excited to join Saturday Celebrations with Ruth Ayres!
It is fun to live my week thinking about what I will celebrate on Saturday!
Terrific TeammatesWhen I opened my Big Fresh newsletter this morning, I discovered an issue dedicated to theme, our content team's current focus. Such serendipity on a Saturday morning! I love Choice Literacy, but I'm not sure I've ever thanked my wonderful teammates there. They support my work, push my thinking, and arrive with the perfect topic at just the right moment.
I'm excited to be part of the Healthy Challenge team created by our social committee. We're scaling the mountain by selecting personal goals to work on each week and then moving our mountain climbers up the mountain as we reach our weekly goals. They've even personalized our mountain climbers with our photos!
Sensational StudentsWe kicked off Mock Newbery book clubs this past week. I love listening to the buzz about books as students discover new books and authors while reading Newbery possibilities for 2014!
My teacher heart sang as I observed one of my students greet a student with learning challenges as he passed by their table in the student center. Because of the kind action of this student, everyone at the table paused to greet this student with kindness and respect. I love my Superstars!
I hope your week was filled with many celebratory moments!
