I cannot say enough how much other bloggers inspire me. They inspire me to be a better teacher, better writer, reader, blogger. I've spent these two weeks off reading and searching for inspiration. I had been feeling close to burn out. Today I am ready to go back and put all I have back into my classroom and my kids.
We will spend the next few weeks on verbs and various short writing projects. At the end of the month we will begin our poetry unit with the book "Love that dog". I love teaching figurative language and poetry. I am always moved by the depth of their thoughts and feelings.
I hope this new year brings you inspiration, creativity, and more stories to share.
