Live, Laugh, Love, Linger . . . and Learn
Celebrate . . .
Between conferences, sessions at ILA, NCTE, CCIRA, and . . . family, it seems like I have many days and nights on the road.
What comes with the room?
What did I forget?
What does that schedule really look like?
Life is often complicated.
There’s the community from #G2Great.
TWT Educators as Writers
and last week #HUSLI19.
Social media groups . . . (another post here “Social Media as a Purposeful Professional Learning Tool”)
Rockstars: Colby Sharp, Cornelius Minor, Jennifer Serravallo and Lester Laminack. Hours of Life. Laughter. Book Loving and Lingering over stories shared and learning, learning, learning!
A bit of rain. Yes a business center. Not a restaurant. Some minor inconveniences.
While in a neighboring state, my mind is with Mia, her family, and her “communities” at the Calivista Motel. I didn’t stay long enough to be a “weekly” but how do I move adeptly in and out of groups? What can I learn from Mia?
When I sketch it out, how does it look in Front Desk?
In one view I have the Calivista Motel, the “front desk”, the school Mia attends, and then China. The second page has Mia and her parents, including their hopes and fears.
Is Mia really on a “point of a triangle” or is she in the middle of every community? And how many individuals does it take to “form” a community?
I was wishing for a 3-D representation (or at least a page of chart paper as 8.5 x 11 was severely limiting. Barely drafted and I am looking to revise. I am not a fan of covering every inch of the page YET. Still admiring white space. Perhaps that will continue to evolve.
And how am I doing with my goals for #BookLove in its last week?
Where is my Writing About Reading headed?
Is it improving?
Slowly moving forward is today’s celebration of life and learning!
What is yours?
