Today I am grateful
to teach and learn
alongside my incredible school family
young and old.
Today I am grateful for Math Workshop with
Capture the Fractions, "Just like war with fractions cards."
The nodding heads and gleaming eyes that whisper, "I get it now."
Students listening and learning from one another.
Writers settling in, but..."Not until we put on the piano music."
Writers sharing and responding thoughtfully.
"I like the way you..." "Your piece has lots of details..."
Writers revising and publishing...."How does this word sound?"
Readers eager for Book Club time.
Time to share thinking about Sistine and Rob,
To chat about Catherine, David, & Jason,
To ponder Aaron's arrival and Tess's reaction.
Readers' enthusiasm, even for ELA practice passages! (Surprising, right?)
Stopping and jotting.
Musicians moving up to band
proudly packing their instruments
Setting up for an impromptu performance
proudly playing for their classmates.
Tonight I am thankful for
Pizza baking in the oven
Dinner with my boys.
Coffee time too.
An extraordinarily ordinary day
So many blessings.
A first draft, a rough draft, some rambling on a tired, but thankful Thursday night. TGIF (almost.)
