Yesterday one of my Fourth Grade student slicers wrote about her favorite things. It was such a great window into her world. I learned things about her that I wouldn’t necessarily know from our time together in Reading and Language Arts class.
I decided to borrow her idea for my slice today. Perhaps what I am most excited about is that as I write with my students this month we are becoming a more connected community, and we support one another as writers. We work side by side, as a team. The lines between teacher and students have softened. We are writers. Together. We talk together about our highs and lows, our successes and failures, our brainstorms and struggles- as writers.
Well loved books, new books, borrowed books…
Sunsets at the beach
The sound outside when snow is falling
Birds gathered at the feeder
Summers in the cottage
A Capella music
The Sunday New York Times
Loyal and patient friends
Cookies straight from the oven
An inspiring sermon
