Celebrate: Five Star Things About the Week


Time to celebrate the week.  More celebrations at Ruth Ayres Writes.


Monday! Our second day with Susan Blackaby, author.  She spent the day teaching students how to write a five-line poem.

This was a group poem from Kindergarten.  And she will be back next Thursday for a final writing day.


A sign of spring.  I spied these on my way into school this week.



The dad who volunteered to help the school play with the sound system.  The biggest problem with the school play is the sound system.  No one can ever hear us very well as we have limited mics for all the speakers.


Working with kinders to write their own five-line poem.  I modeled the poem and then they wrote their own. It’s so exciting to see the ranges of writers; those who struggle with letters to those who get it!

Our first five-day week since the beginning of January.  Plus my asthma has subsided and I finally worked out this morning.


And I started the SOLSC 2014 challenge to write every day in March at Deowriter.
