- Wonderful Wednesday

I wonder do any of you have habits likes these that just make you happy? I'm not sure my students even notice anymore that this is how our morning message starts everyday. But I'm thrilled when I type it every morning for them.
|Thanks ML for my writer's notebook and here are some of my favorite words.|
I purchase cheap little notebooks all summer so when the students get ready to start their own they can choose from the basket. This happens quickly in my classroom because I share my notebooks and how I collect words. I read amazing picture books to get them excited. Have you read the following titles? Here is the link to favorite 10for10 picture books about focusing on creating curiosity about words. I also have several word games in my classroom that my students play every Friday. After we celebrate Poetry Friday, the students play word games and this is my chance to work with small groups to help them with their spelling patterns. My recent group has been focused on the different Long "o" sounds.
I've been searching for ways to share more on my blog about my teaching life. Lately it feels like I'm slicing and celebrating which are really important to me personally. Often those posts include school and personal life. But I asked a friend recently about being stuck in my writing, and she said I always start with what I know and love - words! I am going to try and post on Wonderful Wednesday about word work. Is anyone interested in joining me? Do you have any thought about future posts for word work in your classroom? After all it only takes, two of us for a conversation.
