This month I have done a few things I have never done before. I have kept my small notebook with my paper mate flair to organize myself. As a welcome wagon for five new slicers, I have been able to record the dates of my comments in order to keep me on course.
My word document has also been ready to capture ideas, impressions and potential trials. I must say this has been helpful for me as I have managed to use my organization to benefit myself and my learners. Here are two examples:
Learning from https://mschiubookawrites.wordpress.com/2019/03/10/got-notebook-pages/ ideas, my students created the sketch notes of their weekend in their Writers’ Notebook. The second example, guided by litcoachlady’s day 22’s slice, my students wrote docu- poems after watching a BBC Climate change video.
There are many more ideas I have read about that are ingrained in my being and my call for work. That is why I am indebted to the Two Writing Teachers SOLSC, for this treasure trove I have become a part of. I believe this is one of the most enlightening activities I have taken part in.
My new community, the many friends whose visits I look forward to. The feeling I get when I read the comments from them is extra-ordinary, they help me be the writer that I am growing to be. The comments shed light on some of what I thought about and sometimes take me places I can now go. I thank you all. I am vowing to join the Tuesday SOLSC, as the more I write and read others’ stories the better teacher and writer I am becoming.
Thank you to my colleagues who joined us as the word spread at school, Kay, Darren, Sylvia, Tenkoramah, Mary and many potential teachers who have vowed to join next year. This has been PHENOMENAL!
In Ghana we say medaase or meda mo ase (meaning thank you, everyone).
