SOLS: Living Beside Them

Check out more Slices of Life 


  Thank you for this reminder, Cathy Mere, a PLN colleague.  



We've only been in school for two weeks.  

Two glorious weeks of getting-to-know-you activities.  Two busy weeks of building a community of learners and readers and writers.  Two rapid weeks of reading and reading and reading even more.  Two momentous weeks to meet, talk, and confer with each student.  Two reflective weeks of writing what's in our hearts and minds.  

We've only been in school for two weeks.

  1. I love the quote! A good thing to remember all year long! From your blogs the last couple of weeks it seems like you are having a great start to the year! Enjoy the rest of it

  2. It's only been two weeks but so much has been accomplished with so much more to come. Sounds like you've got a good start!

  3. I like the way you put it all together so poetically with those two weeks, busy, rapid, and so on. Really captures the heart of a school's beginnings.

  4. I LOVE the quotation at the top of your post! And the structure / content of your writing comes together so well to capture the beginning-of-year feelings!

  5. Your quote and slice are very thought provoking. It makes me think about how much time teachers are spending test, test, testing instead of read, read, reading!

  6. Once again a blogger from SOL has given me the perfect quote, the perfect reflection to share with my colleagues. Thank you.

  7. You have clearly had two important weeks that set the tone for all the other weeks to come. Enjoy the company of the young learners. It keeps us young too.
