Thank you TWT for a place to put this blog each Tuesday. Loving this community. This one was a quick write… but it made me cry so it must be right. About leaving my freshman girl at University.
I started a new after-school group today…
My journey on Friday was definitely a slice! https://shannonhorn1.wordpress.com/2015/09/16/flagger-ahead/
All the good vibes in life can be traced back to book connections – connecting “the seasoned” with wonderful children’s books!
Brain Dump! And Where is My Juju???

What makes something funny? Here’s part of me and my husband’s ongoing conversation on this subject.

With the choice to skip writing or to write a short list I pick the last one.

For me, performing in front of a crowd=pressure. I allowed piano recitals, and the mounting pressure that accompanied them, to rob me of my love of playing. How many of my students feel that same angst when they take the stage, sharing their words with an audience? I hope they will tell me if the pressure is robbing them of their joy. I hope I will be wise enough to know and intervene.
Welcome to a slice of my newly (14 days) retired-from-teaching life…Enjoyed Windows shopping. (No spelling mistake:) Thanks for reading, writing, sharing, giving!
It’s all about doing – learning takes action

A near by high school gathered all the students and faculty and watched videos of the 9/11 tragedy. They brought in an few first responders to speak to the students sharing how the events unfolded. The school wanted to honor all the men and women who were there that day! I thought it was very cool!

New appreciation for teaching “stamina” and “all the ways to read a book”. . . so much more than “just turning the pages” . . . do we model this enough?

My Letters to Tuvia continue and I’m feeling like the mourning is officially in motion now.
A brief, half-hearted reflection on my trip home this summer
My 3rd graders were tracing their foot to add to our first week time capsule to be reopened the last week of school and it got me thinking about MY FEET!

Thinking about our options as literacy coaches! In Alaska, so with time change we are early!!

Today Is Dot Day and We Are Not at School
I’ve been trying to steer away from writing about my lovesick woes, but they sort of spilled out onto the page this slice: http://iheartpurplestuff.blogspot.com/2015/09/the-big-prize.html
So interesting the reasons your kiddos write. Because you told me to is sometimes ok, even though we might not like the sound of it! Sort of what this post is about. That and the power of The Dot. https://jarhartz.wordpress.com/2015/09/15/slice-of-life-finding-your-dot/
First one? Today’s slice is a letter to my son’s new preschool teacher.http://couragedoesnotroar.blogspot.com/2015/09/a-letter-to-alexs-teacher-sol15.html
