Today’s the day to reflect on the week. Celebrating all the good things at Ruth Ayres Writes.
I am a bit late today because of number 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.”
My grant books came in this week:
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.
My grand girl’s cat had kittens. She reads to them every night.
The Portland Trailblazers won and move onto the next round.
What are you celebrating?
