Reading Teacher Writes

Sharing a love of literacy with fellow readers and writers


Slice of Life Tuesday: Today I…

Slice of Life Small LogoToday I…

This post comes from inspiration from another Slicer today. I thought I was too busy to post, but writers need to write, so I’m writing.

Today I…taught reading, writing, and social studies geography to 2 groups of awesome 6th graders.

Today I…graded papers before I left school, to save myself the trouble of bringing a bag of work home.

Today I…mowed the front lawn. It needed it!

Today I…vacuumed the upstairs of the house. It needed it!

Today I…took the clean dishes out of the dishwasher (that have been there for 2 days).

Today I…loaded the dishwasher with another pile of dirty ware and turned the knob to “on.”

Today I…read blog posts, and WROTE THIS!

Tonight I…feel much better.


SOLSC Day 11: Tired!

Today I am TIRED! I don’t know why. Oh, yeah…I DO know why:

* the computer light shined brightly and I couldn’t fall asleep (husband was working on an issue from his job)

* the dog cried/groaned all night long and I couldn’t sleep (he’s sick, too! Arg!)

* the ringing phone in my ears; I found out right BEFORE my alarm sounded that my daughter had a 2-hour delay today; I did not.

* failing to eat a good breakfast. I was groggy and grumpy and only had time for the essential tasks of getting ready.

* Fog: Too much concentration needed to drive to work!

* Losing both my plan times today to take care of important tasks

* Getting home after 7:00 p.m. We DID have a nice time at dinner — the last night of the Wings sale (49 cents!).

It’s almost 9:00 p.m. now. I’m tired. Good night!
