  1. 56 days. On some days it feels like five months. On some days it feels like the year just started. I like the math you did to sum up 56 literacy reasons to celebrate..

    1. Thanks, Terje! I have a long list of “To Do’s” that have not yet been accomplished. The post grew out of a need to get out of the “February Snow Slump” and continue on the road to success. All about mindset and perspective . . .

  2. Whoosh, you have been busy! I have thought more about my olw this year than ever before because I have it up in our classroom and my students refer to their words regularly. 1/6 of the year- wow!

    1. I know. A bit of a reflective day as I started out thinking about slicing topics. I do have a long list of “incompletes .“ I am still struggling with how long February seems to be.

  3. Great list of books. Whether we are reading for pleasure or to expand our professional base there is always something to be learned…new information…a unique writing style…simple joys…a new spark of interest…the list goes on.

    1. So important to walk the talk. Never a perfect balance but continuing to GROW is the priority! ❤

  4. You are such a wonderful cheerleader for literacy! Yay for celebrations!

    1. Margaret,
      So focusing on the positives! So many more miles and goals to go! 🙂

  5. I celebrate starting my blog again! I love twitter chats! Have to check out the #ILA chat!

    1. Good luck with blogging. So much fun with slicing.

  6. I like my OLW and made a vision board to help keep me reflecting through this year. Good luck with yours.

  7. I find power in numbers! I love how your posted all the numbers of things you have done so far in 2019. Adding the quanity is a powerful detail. You model so well how literacy leaders should spend their time. You inspire me through your celebrations!

  8. Wow – so much to celebrate! Love your OLW – and all you’ve accomplished!
