SOLC: Tuesday School Play

This will be a quick slice of life tonight.  I just got home from the annual school play which I co-directed. So. Much. Fun. 

What makes it fun is that it’s 8-11 year olds, some for the first time on stage and for some of the fifth graders, their fourth time on stage.  And it’s unpredictable because some one forgets a line or the audio system messes up (like tonight) and their costumes are simple and home-made.

Tonight we did an encore performance of a play written by three fifth graders in 2008 when I was pursuing my national boards for teaching.  It’s about penguins, polar bears, and recycling.

Happy Reading.



Slice of Life Tuesdays

I’m March, I participated in the “Slice of Life Story Challenge” sponsored by Two Writing Teachers.
It made me think about featuring a ‘slice of life’ from the library on Tuesdays.

Since this month is National Poetry Month, the ‘slice of life’ is student poetry. March was one of the coldest and rainiest months when students wrote these.

Crisp ground winter here
Kids playing snow man building
Winter will go on
