As I have said before, I am lucky to reside (work, exist, be) at this magical place where the reader and the story meet.
|What better place to be than where students construct knowledge and understanding?|
Here's what I noticed the last two weeks: I miss writing about what is happening in my library. Why do I write?
I write because I have to, thoughts and phrases knock around in my head as if asking to be let out or yearning to be formed into an idea.
I write to understand. Writing helps to clarify what both I and my students are learning.
|A Wordle for the blog. I LOVE these themes and ideas.|
I write to become better at the craft of teaching. Writing helps me reflect.
|Reflecting on a lesson.|
I am enjoying this much needed respite, knowing that soon enough I'll be back in the library with my students and once again learning and exploring with them. In the meantime, there are my children to share books with.
