This is a fabulous idea from Ruth Ayres in which we write about something to celebrate each Saturday. I am looking forward to participating in this link up each week and hearing about the awesome things happening in everyone's classrooms and lives.
I also was able to spend an amazing weekend with my sister, her baby, and my mother. My sister lives in California so I don't get to see her that often and it was great to spend time with her. I also really enjoyed the time with my niece who is 9 months old. She is so much fun!!! The time with my family was really great. I love that we can share the love of reading and writing together.
I was really happy this week to spy two girls at my reading door. The two girls were pointing to the covers displayed and saying "I want to read this one, and this one, and this one, etc." I love seeing these small moments in time that show that the students are interested in reading.
Yesterday, I found out that one of my students won the "Draw a Quarkbeast" contest. She is super proud of the fact that Jasper Fforde selected her drawing. The drawing will be published in the paperback of The Song of the Quarkbeast which will be released next fall. We had many students enter that contest this fall because Mr. Fforde visited our school in September. I love the way the author visit is having a lasting effect for this student.
What are you celebrating this week? I hope you have had an amazing week! I would love to hear from you in the comments.
