April - Poetry Month - Day 28 - Finding Memories

 Happy Poetry Month!

        I'm taking the advice from the poet who has given so much to help us all, including students and teachers, write poetry. I'll be moving from A to Z, obviously needing to combine a few to make it all come out to 30. FYI—Sometimes, Paul Janeczko offers a prompt to write a poem that begins with the specific alphabet letter instead of a poem type. It will be fun to be open to writing in all kinds of ways!

       You can find the path to the Progressive Poem over to the right! Simply click on the graphic!

        As you can see above, the 26 letters of the Alphabet and words that begin with them have been covered. These final days I decided to find a few memories to write about, preparing for summer time!

Day 28 - Long ago when I taught first grade, a parent came walking in with her girl, my student, kind of hiding behind her mother. Today, many kids wear ball caps and now, looking back, I wish there had been one for her. Her older sister and a friend pretended to be beauticians and practiced cutting hair, on the little sister. No picture today. I'll leave it to your imagination. (It took a long time for the hair to grow out!)



Sissy loved 

playing beautician.

It took months

for my bangs 

to grow back.

Mama cried.
