SOL #4 - Random Thoughts from Today

Yay for writing! Thanks to Two Writing Teachers for giving us a place to write!

I once again sat down to write and am having a hard time finding something to write about. Then I heard my own voice telling my students to just write when they complain about not having anything to journal about. Better do as I say.

Random Thoughts from Today:

  • I got a new student today. This can be such a hard thing and it does throw off the day, but one of the best parts about getting a new student is you realize how far your students have come since the beginning of the year. They know the routines and they know how things go, even when they act like they don't!
  • Sharing Taco Tuesday with a friend is better than Taco Tuesday on your own.
  • This week I sent home book orders and made a flippant comment (I tend to do that a lot) that if we had an order of $125 or more I got cool free books. I have a student who is a co-worker's daughter and mom can get her free books through her own book orders. So the daughter, turned in a book order with her own money to insist that I get free books. Made my *heart flutter* that she was so thoughtful.
Well, that's all I got. :0)

Happy Tuesday ya'll


  1. Yay for thoughtful students!

    I had taco's for lunch. Yummy

  2. Making a list is a great strategy - and see? You had three different stories waiting to be told.

  3. That's great with the books! And I like the list strategy myself. :-)

  4. I almost didn't write last night, because I wasn't sure I had anything to write about. The next time I'm in that place, I'm going to try your list strategy. Thank you!
