{#sol15} except maybe 21/31


The March Slice of Life Story Challenge
hosted at the Two Writing Teachers
Join us for a month of writing!


Spring has officially arrived
along with a much needed break.
Nine days of really no big plans
except maybe ...

Nine days of really no big plans 
except maybe
a weeklong visit of laughing and playing
with Grandma and Grandpa.

Nine days of really no big plans 
except maybe
a scheduled hair therapy appointment
to feel fresh and new again.

Nine days of really no big plans
except maybe
a visit (or two) to the public library
for books, crafts, and a puppet show.

Nine days of really no big plans
except maybe
a trip to the big city to see 

Nine days of really no big plans
except maybe
a date with my mom to get
our toes painted pretty.

Nine days of really no big plans
except maybe
one day for just me to probably 
do some catch up schoolwork ... or not.

Nine days of really no big plans
except maybe
a little birthday celebration 
with family and double chocolate cake.

Spring has officially arrived
along with a much needed break.

  4. One day
    spring will come,
    arriving late beyond the
    calendar date
    with flowers blooming
    and winter,
    long forgotten ...
    one day ...

    :)

  8. Love this, Michelle, so clever and SO exciting. Is there really an Elephant & Piggie show? I will watch to see if it will come to Denver. That is a great part of spring break I think, along with the birthday of course.

  9. NINE FULL DAYS I would say! I have to find when this Elephant and Piggie show will be around here. Have some fun for sure!

  10. I love all the "no big plans" except on your DAY you do school work!! No no no that's the day you schedule a massage, take a walk, meet a friend for lunch, take a yoga class...need I go on? Have fun with your parents. And happy happy birthday Michelle! xoxo

  11. Lots of possibilities. I have never heard of hair therapy. Is that like the eyebrow doctor? ;)
    We still have two weeks of school to go so I'm not ready to think of the possibilities yet, it will steal my momentum. And the momentum is much needed to get to the 'except maybe' part.

  12. Sounds like big plans to me and what fun! You do know how to craft the poem with the most clever lines.These days with no big plans will fly by so enjoy every second!

  13. I love the "except maybe" in your poem. When spring break arrives and others are heading to far away places, we don't always consider what we are doing as much. Your break sounds fabulous!

  14. The "except maybe" is a great grabber! Enjoy every minute of your nine days!! See you on the tenth day!

  15. Your spring break sounds terrific! Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy! And I love how "except maybe" ties everything together.

  16. "Except maybe" you will have a full and delightful Spring Break - enjoy!

  17. What a delightful post. I love the format. As you were writing did you uncover the possibilities?

    ReplyDelete
  18. "Except maybe"....those words hold such possibility!! That sounds like my spring break that starts in another week. "I have no big plans, except maybe..." So clever!!!

  19. Love the concept of no big plans contradicted by a long list of little ones. Sounds like a wonderful way to spend break. All the little stuff adds up :-) enjoy!

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! 


Yo! Yes! by Chris Raschka


A fun, simple book about friendship.  I love using this book to discuss punctuation, size and color of tex…

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.


YOU make #cyberPD a success!
