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.

Spring? SOLC #26

 I went for a walk this morning.

It sounded like spring.
Birds were chirping
and flying between trees.
Dogs were barking
at all the people out walking.
Squirrels chattered and
shook tree branches
as they climbed.

It looked like spring.
Leaf buds were popping
out of tree branches.
Green blades of grass
the dried, brown clumps.
Clear running water
flowed through the creek bed.

It felt like winter.
The "real feel" temperature
was 26 degrees.
The wind was
out of the north.
The snow piles remained
from Monday's surprise storm.

The weather forecaster
warmer weather
next week.

Here's hoping for
true spring
to arrive
