Join Two Writing Teachers and other teacher-writers as we share a slice of life every single day in the month of March.
What I'm reading - I started Wild Bird by Wendelin Van Draanen, a book about a young girl who has problems with drugs and alcohol. Her parents don't know what to do with her, so they send her to a therapeutic wilderness camp. I know so many kids get in over their heads, and they don't even know it is happening. I can't wait to see how she how makes it through!
What I'm writing - I write for Choice Literacy, a multimedia resource of articles, videos, and professional development guides for teachers and literacy leaders. I have a couple of articles that I am revising before sending them off to my editor, Ruth Ayres.
What I'm learning - Sometimes we react to situations in ways we regret. A solution is always possible. Sometimes we just need to walk away in order to find it.
What I'm loving - I'm loving the sounds of my daughter cheering on basketball teams while watching March Madness. Tournament time was greatly missed in my household last year, and I am loving hearing those sounds again.
I found and saved this format from an early slice, but I forgot to save where I found it. So thank you, slicer! If it was you, please let me know so I can give you credit for the idea.
