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

Yesterday was a busy day full of slicing story opportunities ...

A trip to the big city 
to visit the quaint Apollo Theatre 
to watch the phenomenal Elephant & Piggie Show.
Impressed with the production!

A trip to the local library
to pick up more Elephant & Piggie books
to reread, remember the show, and laugh again.
Disappointed with no books available!

A trip to The Tap House Grill
to have a dinner date night out
to connect and talk life with my hubby.
Satisfied with sharing a delicious meal (and dessert).

A trip to Feed My Starving Children
to volunteer with our church family
to pack meals to nourish hungry children.
Fulfilled with helping in a little way.

A trip to my comfortable bed
to thinking about all the memories
to dream about our busy, exciting day.
Relaxed with sleep even without a slice written for today.

Yesterday was a busy day full of slicing story opportunities ... 


I would highly recommend the Elephant & Piggie Show!  It was amazingly fantastic and entertaining.  Elephant & Piggie and their books came to life on stage -- singing, dancing, and lots of laughing!


  1. You are speaking of one day, right? Amazing how many trips you made. I like that you included a trip to your bed also.

  2. What a full day it was! I need to think of my daily movements as trips. Might make them more fun.

  3. I love busy fun days! It sounds like a great day!

  4. I miss reading Elephant and Piggy books with the kids and with you in the little office :-)

  5. Oh my gosh. I wonder if the Elephant and Piggy show is coming to Denver! Our first grade is doing an Mo Willems author study and they love, love, love Gerald and Piggy. Sounds like you had a fantabulous day!

  6. Oh my goodness! I would so love to go to this show!

  7. It sounds like a jam-packed-very-busy--PERFECT day!! Hoping to see Elephant and Piggie - We Are In A Play!, too!!

Slice of Life hosted at the Two Writing Teachers Join in and share a slice of your life.
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.

Happy, happy 40th birthday Jon!

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.
