11 on 11.11.11

It’s kind of been a long week, so I’m going to save the blog post that has been tumbling around in my mind until I have a little more time to pull it together. Instead I’ll give you 11 snippets on 11.11.11.

  1. Thank you for the comments and feedback on this post. I’m glad the words were what they needed to be for many.
  2. It’s Veteran’s Day and I’m thankful for the men and women who serve our country.
  3. I’m thankful for this blog, The Poem Farm. Do you know it? Not only are the poems whimsical and lovely, but Amy shares tips for teachers when it comes to poetry. Check it out!
  4. I’m looking forward to meeting up with bloggers on Friday morning at NCTE. Are you interested in joining us? Check out the information here.
  5. Christmas is coming. Christmas is coming! I made this (without the pecans) as a reminder that it is close.
  6. I’m pretty sure these words from the little guy first thing this morning, will stay with me forever: Mom, you are so pretty.
  7. In kindergarten today we talked about finding a writing spot. It reminded me how important a good writing spot is to me. Right now I’m in my favorite writing spot, snuggled under my pirate quilt on the end of the couch next to Andy who is watching college basketball — Go Hoosiers!
  8. This is our last empty weekend until 2012. Yes, you read that correctly. I’m planning to savor Saturday morning.
  9. Thinking a little about my One Little Word. For 2011 it is connect. I’m beginning to percolate about my word for 2012.
  10. The live Polar Bear cam has been a fun little addition to my week, as well as to Superkiddos’ classroom.
  11. Yum.

  1. Ni Hao Stacey and Ruth! I am an avid reader of your blog (read: obsessed), and I have recently become very interested in the NCTE conference after reading bits about it on your blog. I’m a Literacy Coach at an international school in Shanghai and find it difficult to find PD opportunities in Asia. So…I know it’s too late to attend this year’s conference, but I’d love to attend next year. Any information you have to share about the experience, how early to register, etc. would be greatly appreciated. Oh, and I cannot thank you enough for your blog. It gives me inspiration everyday, and nudges me toward the writer and Literacy Coach I hope to be someday! You gals are awesome! 🙂


  2. I had fun reading your potpourri of 11-11-11. I enjoyed reading about The Poem Farm–very inspiring. The polar bears have yet to appear for me–love the idea of having this site on during silent reading. Collecting recipes–one of my favorite things to do. Thanks for a great Saturday morning read.
