My classroom is not a quiet, orderly place.
Students are constantly moving, thinking, talking, reading and writing.
I do my best to help my students find success.

Daughter - SOLC #31

HOORAY! 
It's my 31st slice!  I (we) made it!  I (we) wrote for 31 days!
This slice is dedicated to my daughters (and my husband) who have been my cheerleaders during this challenge.  I love you!!!

  2. What a great way to honor your daughters! Love the way you divided, yet brought them together. I can tell how proud you are of both of them and I know they're proud of you too. So glad we all accomplished our goal and wrote for 31 days straight!

  4. The format reminds me of "You Read to Me, I'll Read to You." Was that your inspiration? It would be fun to have your daughters read it and record it in that manner. CONGRATS on slicing for 31 days! WE MADE IT!

  10. Chris,
    I love the way you formatted this poem. Perfect for your message! Isn't it funny how different our daughters can be? I loved the middle full of commonalities about daughters.
