Almost There 2018 #SOL

Screen Shot 2018-06-19 at 7.07.21 AM

Three days of school to go and it’s my final SOL for the school year. That means more time for writing and posting is coming very soon! This week I’m revisiting and updating my “Almost There” post from last year to reflect changes that have occurred.

Almost There

Frogs returned

Digraphs learned

Assessments complete

New carpet’s beat

Pencils bitten

Report card comments written

Goodbye bags prepped

Promises kept

Technology unplugged

Children hugged

Bulletin boards bare

Almost there

— Christie Wyman, 2018


Many thanks to the crew at Two Writing Teachers, and the extended SOL community, for giving us the time, space, and encouragement to live the writerly life here each Tuesday. Won’t you join us?

  1. It seems strange that there are still places that are in school. In Colorado we have been out for over two weeks. Last night I was laying in bed counting the days until July 23rd, when I go back!


  2. We’re in school through this Friday, so you’re not alone! Great poem! Have a happy summer and hope we can meet up at the Heinemann shindig later this summer!
