Throughout the summer I have been reading. However, this week I began a new learning adventure. I began participating in "Teachers Write." This is summertime writing place for teachers to improve the craft of writing. Each day has a topic and the writer can choose whether or not to share. So far, I've been sharing.
The author's blogs that I have learned about include Kate Messner's and Nora Baskin's. Both of these authors write for elementary and middle school audiences. Kate Messner also has a book about helping students edit. I have ordered that and am anxiously awaiting it's arrival.
It's July 8th and there is only one month left until I'm officially back in the library. Although, I know I'll be there before then. Around the first of August I'll be getting anxious.
