As I watched some parts of writing workshop last week, I felt that writing was very much a delightful part of the students’ day.
Comfortable sounds help us nestle
into the classroom
Gray clouds hover outside,
Small murmurings and
brain clouds float inside.
A chair scrapes. Someone coughs.
A student sighs; I wonder why.
They sit at computers,
Quiet friendly voices wing in from the hall
“Hey, nice to see you, how are you all?”
Time to move, and re-sharpen pencils.
to the carpet,
sharing words, sharing thoughts.
Everyone is thinking hard
even before lunch.
