Last weekend, when it was so nice outside
I sprayed inks with my journal in the grass.
Actually, now my sidewalk is kind of colorful.
Listening to the autumn leaves...
How was your week?
I had my school's Open House on Thursday Night,
so it's been a full and busy week,
The anxiety I always feel inside of myself
around a lot of adults (not children!) is
different these days, so I hope I am learning and growing.
I really try hard to keep the peace within me
I accept that I am shy and introverted
as I open my room and meet lots of parents .
I did a spontaneous writing activity
with my 2nd graders this week,
journaling about their imaginative play...
It warms my soul to know that children
still pretend with stuffed animals
and don't just play video games.
My students were so excited.
They thought, wrote, shared.
It makes me remember why I am a teacher.
Have a super weekend,
