Four Somethings #SOL22

On (some) Tuesdays I write about education and then post to the Two Writing Teacher blog. and then comment on at least three other blog posts

My dear friend Lisa shared this format on her blog. You can read it here.

Something Loved

Most of my students can pronounce my last name just fine but occasionally I have a student who will call me “Mrs. B”. I have one student that calls me “Mrs. Weiser” – she wrote that in her book she is making this morning! LOL

I always love writing time because the students always chatter. When I taught kindergarten they would comment on each other’s writing and process the whole time. It was adorable and perfect.

“We have a lot of dandelions in our yard” my student says today as she adds grass and dandelions to her picture in her book. “My sister is a teenager. She doesn’t care.” I found out her sister also cut her own hair…her mother was not happy.

Something Read

I am reading Six Walks: In the Footsteps of Henry David Thoreau and enjoying it immensely. I love a “stunt” memoir. The author is taking walks Thoreau did and writing about his experience. His writing style is inviting.

Something Treasured

My red thread bracelet I have not taken off since it touched my wrist.

I am also treasuring that my building has air conditioning. It is forecasted to be 90 degrees here and it was 60 on Sunday.

Something Ahead

There are lots of things to look forward to over the next several months and beyond. The end of the school year is approaching and major changes are happening for me. There is a plan for me to not be in public education in the fall in order to be a full time writer. There are several logistics that are being worked out but it is exciting and terrifying all at once. More on that another day.

  1. Great format! I have to keep this one in my back pocket.
    Kindergarten is a magical space. The littles are earnest and true in their feelings, and they obviously approve of you 😊
    It’s currently 9 °C where I live – I can’t imagine a Spring day in the 30°C range.
    I am looking forward to reading future slices about you transitioning from a classroom to full time writer. Congratulations!

  2. Thanks for this format. Like Book Dragon, I’m keeping this format handy. So telling, “my sister is a teenager. She doesn’t care,” right? I don’t even know how to react to your final news, that next year you may enter the world of writing full-time. What I can truly appreciate is your mixed feelings though. The author I speak about in my post says that “if you love it [writing] enough to do it full time” then you should. That seems to fit you perfectly from what I’ve seen. All the best as decisions demand.
