Day 12: SOLSC Slice of Life Story Challenge

What I Really Want

I want to curl up on the couch with a book, or sit on the sofa and let someone else cook.

I want to teach my students to read, and talk about characters, and write with a need

to say something important, to fight for what’s right; to care about learning, to end the world’s strife.

I want to vacation with family and friends. I want this winter to come to an end!

I want my kids to grow up and be free, to be who they want, to get jobs, and succeed.

I want to be able to sit back and relax. I want to enjoy life without feeling taxed.

I don’t really want much, I just want to say, “Thank you” for letting me live through today.

I write about reading and literacy education. My passion is sharing stories about reading and writing workshop teaching. My goal is collaborating, researching, and sharing with other life-long literacy learners. Welcome to my blog!

  1. A list of simple requests…yet, aren’t the simple things the most important. The last line hit me hard! Appreciate life and the gift that it is!
