To spread sunshine wherever I go…
wait… to contribute to the success of the literacy development of all students … and their teachers
maybe… to encourage innovation in literacy and contribute to agency and advocacy in literacy initiatives
hmmm… to help all the little children learn to read and write just a little better than they did yesterday?
Encourage… all the people, students, teachers, support staff, parents, administrators, passersby
Plan… lessons, meetings, professional development, space allotment, purchases, to read and write more
Search… for just the right paper, book, pencils, working space, words of encouragement(see above)
Find… just the right paper, book, pencils, working space, words of encouragement (see above) at the just the right moment
Reflect… on whether I planned, searched, and found just the right moments, resources, people, places, and words
Repeat… all of the above… every day of every year
Authority to read books, encourage, write alongside, confer, small group, read aloud, whisper, cheer, photograph, record, and occasionally cry. (wait… I don’t have the authority to do that, I just do)
Show up early.
Bring some books.
Have some ideas.
Listen to more ideas.
Try a few things.
Try a few more things.
Reflect on that trying.
Meet, Hug, High-Five,
Sing, Read Some More, Think,
Today’s NaPoWriMo challenge was to write poems that provide the reader with instructions on how to do something.
Welcome back to Tuesday where we slice about our every day with our community sponsored by the amazing writers and encouragers at TwoWritingTeachers.org. Please enjoy some other slices here.
