I am kicking off this year's challenge the same way as last year - with a party!
This is the slice that keeps on sharing. Sometime this month when you need a slice, (and yes, you know it WILL happen!) accept this invitation to my party. The best part is that you can stop by anytime during the month, but here is the catch. You have to bring five items that are listed on the invitation below.
What a great way for us introduce ourselves and get to know each other a little bit better as the month moves along. Imagine a big party full of slicers!
Here is what I am bringing:
Favorite book: This is a difficult one for me because I have so many favorite books. I will have to go with my favorite book I have read so far this year, and that would be Scythe by Neal Shusterman. This book has been spreading through my room almost as fast as the flu virus!
Favorite person: I would bring my sister, Janis. She is a fellow teacher, a cancer survivor, and one of the most positive people I know, and she brings life to any party she attends. Although we are nothing alike, I know you will love her!
Favorite food or beverage: We have a local pizza place, Bobe's, that has been around since the 1950's. We have people who have lived here and moved away, and Bobe's is always a stopping place when they come back to visit. Some people even have these pizzas mailed to them! They are that good.
Favorite song: When I was in high school, our basketball team won the state championship. And if you know anything about Indiana basketball, then you know basketball is king. Those four weeks of high school are some of my fondest memories. The song Celebrate by Kool and the Gang was played at every pep session and became our theme song. And since it's a party, why not CELEBRATE!
Surprise: I would bring each of you a notebook to record our laughs and memories of our time together. What a great party this would be!
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you consider joining me sometime this month and bring along a few friends. Don't forget to RSVP when you post by either commenting here or tweeting me
@Teachr4. That way I can include you in this post and we can all share in the party fun! Last year we had 24 slicers join us, and I can't wait to see who all attends this year!
Let's get this party started!
