A photo. A couple of reflections. That’s it. And no promises that I’ll keep it up every week!
- In a lesson about the mysterious and curious “oo” sound, “Once I was hiking and I found a rock that had iron in it and I said, ‘Ooh, what is that?'”
- An impromptu “project period” after a particularly challenging morning painting lesson. The first graders obligingly made themselves adorable by breaking out into Christmas carols, taping “snowflakes” onto the classroom door and making a temple out of paper with a cut-out paper menorah.
- “Ms. Floyd-Preston, you’re the best storyteller.””I’m only a good storyteller because I have children who listen and love my stories.”
