I believe being a writer is one of the biggest gifts you can give to your students. ~ Stacey Shubitz
This month I am participating in the Slice of Life Story Challenge. Thanks to Two Writing Teachers for creating a space for me to share my corner of the world.
Last night I was looking through some tweets from the Michigan Reading Association Conference, (#MRApassport) and came across this one. I thought this would make a perfect slice for my busy day!
I read; therefore, my children walk in and say, "Guess it's leftovers...again."
I read; therefore, I have to rewash the stinky laundry that sat in the washer for days.
I read; therefore, my students say, "Mrs. Eck, you look tired today."
I read; therefore, I announce, "Not tonight, I have three chapters left."
I read; therefore, I stay in my pajamas all day.
I read; therefore, my favorite shopping trip involves a book store.
I read; therefore, I add Amazon gift cards to my grocery cart to keep my purchases a secret.
I read; therefore, I ship my Amazon purchases to school. (Shh...)
I read; therefore, I have tinted reading glasses for poolside.
When I first wrote this slice, I had a comma after read and then the rest of the sentence. After realizing I am teaching parenthetical elements this week, I thought it would be a good idea to go back and fix them...even though I like them better the other way!
