It could have been a snow day today. Everyone went home from school yesterday sure that it would be. Part of me would have liked staying in my cozy bed a few extra hours and rising to drink coffee and play with fabric and paper. I even went to Joann's last night to make sure my craft supplies were well stocked! No phone calls. No posts about school cancellations for MY school.
It was a day filled with great moments. After a week of learning how to take notes from nonfiction, we wrote our first paragraphs. Even my lowest achieving student was able to complete the task without a tear or the words "I can't". Their excitement at realizing they had "Paragraph Power" was unreal. It was a day that confirmed to me that yes this is what I was meant to do. It seemed like a good day to start posting!
