a writing workout

I only wish writing burned calories.

I've been writing every day for over a month -- 33 days.
Some days for twenty minutes, and other days closer to an hour.
A habit has been formed and it's hard to just give it up.

Writing about moments.  Sharing an idea.  Telling a story.
Capturing a feeling.  Reflecting on today.  Crafting a poem.
Writing about writing about writing about writing.

Writing and thinking and tapping my fingers.
Adding and changing and fixing it just right.
Copying and playing and pasting again.

If only writing burned calories.

  1. We would all be skinny (at least our fingers). Great poem. Glad you're still writing. I'm writing in my head - it hasn't hit the computer yet. Love ya, Mom

  2. I am glad too that you are blogging daily. It's like reading a small greeting from you every day. Theoretically, the more time you spend writing, the less time yo have to eat. That's healthy.

Today my husband celebrates a big, BIG birthday -- and I'm so lucky and thankful to have spent  the last sixteen years learning about everything that he loves the last (almost) twelve years learning about everything that I love about him the last (almost) five years learning with my daughters why we love our Daddy.

Picture Books: August 10 for 10

I love picture books.  No, you don't understand. I really L.O.V.E. picture books!

It is an obsession . . .  to read, to borrow, to purchase, to savor, to share, to read again     . . .  and again . .  . and again.  I need them.  I want them.  I have to have them!

That is why I had to participate in this event!  Cathy and Mandy are hosting August 10 for 10: The second annual picture book event.  They suggested to pick the 10 picture books that I can't live without in my classroom and library.  This is quite an undertaking, but I've got my favorites to share -- as of now -- in no particular order. I'm sure this list will be amended as I learn and read and fall in love with other favorite picture books.

But for now -- 
[drum roll please]
These are my go-to books.   My love-to-read-over-and-over books.   My just-can't-live-without-them books!

It's that time of year again! Cathy and I have finally selected our #cyberPD book for our summer learning. It's never an easy decision. 

Conversations go back and forth. 
Ideas fly. 
Standards are high. 
Book stacks full of possibilities are higher. 
And then ... it happens. 
The just right book emerges from the stacks.

The book selection is important, but what makes this PD event truly successful are the amazing teachers and educators across the globe that support each other through the learning process.
