Thankful #SOLC20 #SOL20 #PoetryFriday

Happy second Friday of the 2020 Slice of Life Challenge at Two Writing Teachers AND Poetry Friday, all! Today I’m slicing up a bit of poetry. Children’s poet and author Matt Forrest Esenwine is hosting this week’s gathering on his blog, Radio, Rhythm & Rhyme.  Won’t you join us there? Slicing poetry on Fridays during the SOLC is a great way to flex those writing muscles. If you are ever wondering where to find the weekly host of Poetry Friday, you’ll find a list of hosts and their blog links here.

Today was our first of two professional development days dedicated to preparing for online learning which begins in our district next Thursday. We have been closed since dismissal on Wednesday, and we’ve been cashing in our snow days to see us through as we boldly go where few teachers have gone before. Today I find myself thankful.



Thanks for wondering and wandering a bit with me today. 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 and every day during the month of March. And thanks to Matt for hosting this poetic side of this week’s double celebration! Happy Friday, all, and be well.
