The strange experience with the mail today: http://tmblr.co/Z8A2ki1z9T9-3
I looked for a place to leave a comment but your Tumblr doesn’t have a comment feature. I was going to post something about watch mailboxes being like watched pots but even more so.
This might help with comments, http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/22032/add-traditional-comments-to-tumblr-blogs-with-disqus/

Ten Minute Habits
Still thinking about NCTE and book recommendations made at some of the sessions I attended.
I thought I might lose myself, but I found myself instead! http://ihabloespanglish.blogspot.com/2015/12/the-great-puzzle.html
Remember a “first” as a novice driver . . .
I thoroughly enjoyed your post and thank you for bringing to light those webinars! I’m going to have to look out for them now. Something that stuck out is Kwame’s mention that his father made him read a dictionary when he was growing up, which is what my mom in the form of a game did so that we’d have fun learning.
Fun and learning should always go together. Who enjoys drudgery? (YET I do remember reading a lot of encyclopedia entries!)
Thanks for reading and commenting!
A late post-a recap of last nights webinar featuring Donalynn and Kwame!https://lovinglivingteachingliteracy.wordpress.com/2015/12/02/kwame-on-the-crossover-poetry-reading/

An Advent Practice of Gratitude
A Thanksgiving to remember
Here is today’s slice:
A poem based on Psalm 104:33
If my kiddo wants me to read her chapter books, they might as well be from Lois Lowry! (Don’t worry. We didn’t start Number the Stars.)
Tis the season for food! In that spirit, I’ve been thinking about “Breaking Bread: The Rhetorical Power of Food in Life and Literature.” Even as I post this, I’m aware that I’ve only begun to examine all the ways we communicate through food. Bon Appetite! http://www.evolvingenglishteacher.blogspot.com/2015/12/breaking-bread-rhetorical-power-of-food.html

Thank you, Scrabble:
Waiting for a change can be exciting.
I don’t really read the paper for the news! http://pleasuresfromthepage.blogspot.com/2015/12/slice-of-life-newspaper-nuggets.html
My toys come alive in December at the stroke of midnight. #toycember They got into the Christmas tree lights. Oh dear.

A few thoughts about writing, teaching writing, and agency.
Just read your Slice and tried a few times to leave a comment. Tough fight.
Here’s my last effort
The verification below is making me crazy. It just erased my comment. Carol I loved your haiku and that’s what challenges me. I love to take up the April challenge when I can make the poem my own. No rules allowed. Keep yours coming.
How hard can it be to write 500 syllables? Taking on a teeny little writing challenge for December http://carolwscorner.blogspot.com/2015/12/slice-of-life.html
Family came and left, it’s been a whirlwind of a week!

Whistle A Happy Tune
A slicer reaches across the miles and opens her heart for my students. What a community this is! Thank you Bernadette!
I’m thankful for conversations with our children over Thanksgiving that helped me realize we’re all on a journey searching for pieces of the puzzle or slices of life. I haven’f found all the answers (yet0.
A poem inspired by Ralph Fletcher!
Remembering and celebrating the imperfections that inspire stories:
