“I’m scared…Today could be the day…”
Silence. He was checking his blog. “Nope.”
“Today’s not the day?” another student sympathized.
“Nope. Maybe tomorrow,” Julian responded.
At this point we all know exactly what he is referring to – Sophie’s Mom.
My students have been blogging all month as part of the Two Writing Teachers Classroom Slice of Life. Recently, Stacey Shubitz commented on some of my students’ blog posts. (Thank you Stacey!) When she comments, a tiny picture of her is also visible next to the comment. Julian at Amazing15 saw a comment from her on a classmate’s blog and automatically turned to Sophie, a classmate. “Is this your mom? Are you sure?” She assured him it was not her mother, but couldn’t deny the resemblance.
Although he knows Stacey Shubitz is from Two Writing Teachers and is not Sophie’s mom, he still looked each day this week for a comment from “Sophie’s Mom.” Today his post is about this very wish. You can read it and leave him a comment here. He is a dedicated writer and has sliced every day of March so far!
Stacey – If you are reading this, it would make Julian’s day/week/school year if he were to receive a comment from Sophie’s famous mom!
