Dear Mother Nature,
Thank you for your fall temperatures! I am loving sitting here on the couch, windows open, covered with a blanket. I have been sleeping so fabulously because of you. (6:30 last night to 10:30 this morning!) Maybe I’ll even wear boots tomorrow?!
Dear Lucy Calkins and authors of Units of Study,
I am really enjoying my second year of implementing writing workshop and your Units of Study in our third grade room. After graduating from college and student teaching I didn’t feel prepared to teach writing, but the more time I spend teaching from your units, the stronger I feel as a writing instructor. Reading the students’ personal narratives really helps me get to know them. Thank you so much for your guidance.
A Writing Teacher
I know I have called you a Big Blogging Bully, and I stand by my words, but I mean it in a very positive way. I may have been hesitant to start blogging, but you pushed me to do it and now I love it. Becoming a writer has helped me as a writing teacher as well as being just plain enjoyable.
A Very Opinionated Teacher 😛
