Celebrate: Five Star Things About the Week

I am a bit late today because of number one.

ONE
Today I presented/taught at the 30th Annual Oregon Writing Festival for fourth grade through twelfth grade students. It was my first time to present and what fun. I had two sessions of fourth-fifth graders. We wrote poetry. At the end of the second session a boy wanted me name his hat. I did, “Gregoire.”

Second grade authors’ celebration for their nonfiction writing. In a time when the school day is packed with the “have-tos” that these celebrations can occur.

The responses from people receiving their poetry post cards. Several postcards have shown up on blogs. Then a box arrived from Irene Latham with signed bookmarks for the students who sent postcards.
