Saturday Celebration

Slice of Life Challenge
Please join the challenge over at Two Writing Teachers!

Celebrations from this past week...

Sunday: A day spent nurturing myself...cooking, writing, cleaning, grading...I love Sundays when I'm prepared for the week ahead!


Monday: Came home after a long day and painted. I'm loving painting. It's like therapy and writing and relaxing all rolled up into one...I haven't even completed an entire canvas yet...


Tuesday: Amazing book/student match today...the right book found the right student at the right time. She refuses to stop reading and repeatedly declares, "This is the best book ever!" 


Wednesday: Productive training where I became inspired to create an interesting and unusual poetry unit for fourth quarter! Still working on it...details to come.


Thursday: ZONE day...a day spent reading and celebrating my readers. I always love this day and my students love ZONE day too. 


Friday: Surprised with dinner plans! Enjoyed time catching up and chatting with an adorable and rambunctious three year old. Time spent with friends is good for the soul.


Saturday: Off to an amazing conference, Language and Learning 2014 to listen to talented Northern Virginia teachers share their expertise in writing AND the great and amazing Penny Kittle! YAY!!


What are you celebrating this week?

  4. The conference sounds great. I've only heard Penny speak once, but she was amazing. (It was a long time ago... she was speaking with Don Graves!) Enjoy!
