I want to share Friday's post at the Teaching Authors blogsite where they are beginning their annual tradition of inviting others to write Thankus. A Thanku is a haiku of thanks during this time of the year leading to Thanksgiving. If you'd like to share one, they will post it at the end of the month, and sometimes share on the blog. Even if you don't write one, it's wonderful to read all that others are writing.
Time to celebrate my colleagues this week! I'd like to share that I'm going to be the core teacher in a classroom for the remainder of the year with the same age students I've taught before, 6th, 7th and 8th graders, what we term Advanced School. My mind is whirling, ideas are swirling, and I am grateful for colleagues who often stopped in to give hugs and offer help. I completed conferences Thursday and Friday, and had good conversation with students and parents, viewed their portfolios, and made future plans. I know I'll have much to share and celebrate in the weeks to come!
I wrote about my "slow" Monday here, and will be celebrating and remembering that day as I become busier.
It rained last night. For some of you, it's not a celebration, but for this arid climate in Denver, it's a joy. We're supposed to have more early next week, and perhaps a little snow. Winter arrives in November and I celebrate bringing out the sweaters.
Have a wonderful next week everyone!
