Time for the weekly Slice of Life at the Two Writing Teachers blog. Tweet at #SOL14
Thanks to Stacey, Tara, Dana, Beth, Anna and Betsy for the spectacular year of posts at Two Writing teachers. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to everyone!
I posted last Saturday about a special ending we have before my school departs for our winter break, and here is part of what I said:
There are a variety of special days that our families celebrate this time of year, and some do not celebrate any holiday; however, we do believe that light is important in all of our lives. Every year, each class and other groups (like the trip teachers, math and music teachers, etc.) creates a display of some kind that shows ways that something or someone lights up our lives.
This time I've added more photos of different ways some of the classes shared who or what brought light into their lives. I wanted this 'repeat' because it feels like an important part of including everyone in celebrations especially during this time of year. I found a quote of Muslim origin that speaks to this: “A lot of different flowers make a bouquet.” My hope for all is that you find light in numerous ways in your lives.
