It is fun to live my week thinking about what I will celebrate on Saturday.
A week filled with moments to celebrate and remember!
- Poetry Invitations - We tried out poems of address, list poems, and persona poems this week. We're following Amy at Poetry Farm each day. How perfect that she had a persona poem the day after I introduced the form to my classes! She gives a wonderful window into her writing process each day. I feel like I'm being tutored by one of the poetry goddesses.
- Novels-in-Verse - One of my students is reading Home of the Brave (a personal favorite), another returned Out of the Dust, and we read Words with Wings on Friday. I send them on spring break with these words: "They (words) fly in, silent as sunrise, tickle my imagination, and carry my thoughts away."
- Spring Break - I'm off to California to visit my sister, Kay. She says I'm only allowed to grade papers between the hours of 5 a.m. and 8 a.m. I'm bringing some easy papers for her to grade.
