It’s been quite a month. I am connecting in several places today as I say goodbye to April, poetry month.
You can find me over at the Nerdy Book Club talking about all the bookshelves I have in my house (somewhat embarrassing), which really only means I own a lot of books .
I am connecting to Betsy’s blog, Teaching Young Writers in order to share the chalk poem that I wrote and chalked last week, of much interest to all the young skateboarders who practice at the end of my street, a cul de sac. Here is my poem:
And I will link this post to It’s Monday, What Are You Reading, to Kellee and Jen’s blog, Teach Mentor Texts which I try to do every Monday.
I am currently reading The Snow Child, by Eowyn Ivey, the first adult book I’ve read in a while. It’s poignant and sweet and real, but full of magic all at the same time. I’m enjoying it very much.
I have read and will review tomorrow Laura Purdie Salas’ Bookspeak, a beautiful book of poetry from books’ point of view. It’s well worth having on your own bookshelf. I’ve read lots of other picture books, but will save those for next week.
It’s the last day of the Progressive Poetry group where I added a line earlier. The poem was completed this am by Irene Latham at Live Your Poem who began this whole adventure. Click on the link to read the whole poem.
Thanks to all who have been so thoughtful and supportive these past weeks. Life is moving along; my husband is in a good and caring place and things are being worked out, bit by bit by bit. Happiest of Mays to all of you!
