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!
