June 12, 2017

Today is the first day of our #CISDLitCamp and we are talking about how teachers must be passionate about reading and writing themselves if they are to impact their classroom. And then I look at the last time I've posted to this blog and it has been almost 3 months!  Eek!!
What is the cause of this lapse in time? Is it that I'm too busy? Too distracted by technology? Don't have anything to write about? I think it could be a combination of all 3 things. I am about to embark on two writing challenges for the summer; Teachers Write 2017 and A Slice 0f Life 2017. Hopefully this will be the kick start that I need to get back into writing.
Currently reading: Book Scavenger
Currently writing: Working on an idea for a children's book :)

How is it that my writing on this blog ebbs and flows like the mighty Mississippi? I always have the best of intentions to write daily; weekly; ok, even monthly would be great at this point!! As a reading and writing teacher, I value the importance of daily reading and writing with reflection time. Except that if I'm totally honest, it just doesn't happen.  So, how do I encourage my students to do the one thing that I myself find difficult to do? We set a goal, we try to muster through and then we accept that we can only do our best. So for today and moving forward, I am going to try to post a couple of times a week. We'll see how it goes!!
