Celebrate: Five Star Things About This Week

IMG_0626

It’s Saturday.  Time to celebrate the week with others at Ruth Ayres Writes.

ONE

Students returned to school this week.  Everyone has the spirit and promise of a new year.  I love seeing that in not only the students but the parents and staff.

TWO

Students love reading and they want to know you are a reader.

Two comments from students (one actually a sigh)…in answer the question of “what’s your favorite part of the library?” The answer was “I’m surrounded by books.”  

The other was a sigh when I answered the question to “did you read more than ten books this summer?” I said no ( I read nine both kid and adult books). I rechecked my list after class and discovered I actually read ten books. So I plan to share my list.

THREE

Am reading Reading in the Wild by Donalynn Miller (was the PD online book for the summer which with shoulder surgery I missed). I. Love. It.  So needed this inspiration.

Als reading Countdown by Deborah Wiles. Incredible.

FOUR

Meeting with three other writers through Google Chat on my writing this week.  Such a great way to connect.

FIVE

Signs of fall sneaking in:

  1. Love that picture, Jone, and that you’re reading Donalyn’s book. It’s wonderful. I have Wiles’ Revolution, and duh, just discovered that Countdown was 1st. It may need to wait! Glad you had such wonderful reading connections at school this week. Sounds like a good start!

  2. You had a promising start to the new year. It’s great to start with enthusiastic readers. I was a bit sad to miss the cyberPD but like you I read the book independently. I love the passion Donalyn has in her words.
