I Get It

This morning I celebrated day 19 of SOL.  I noted that there are only 12 more days in March . . . ONLY 12?!!  I’m so done with this challenge.  I have been reading SOL community members slices for the last hour, hoping to be inspired.  Instead, I am overwhelmed.  Such talent on the SOL.  What did I get myself into?  ONLY 12 more days?!!  Oh my.

As I TRY to write this evening,

I empathize with all of those students who went off to their writing spots, stared into space and simply twirled their pencils.

I empathize with all of the students who spent their writing workshop erasing, crossing out, and starting over.

I empathize with all my kindergarteners who simply copied words off of classroom signs.  If only there were signs I could copy tonight!

A few years ago, one of my kindergartners crumpled up his writing, threw it into the basket and said, “I do not want to be a writer!”  If I could crumple up my writing, I too, would toss it into the basket and exclaim, “I do not want to be a writer!”

Looking forward to a new day!
