I am sorry I could not be with you today and I am sad that I will miss all of the presentations. But I am certainly doing lots of writing, only I'll be doing it with this view (still foggy at 7:00).
This weekend I am attending a writing retreat at the beautiful Samoset Resort. The weather and foliage are beautiful and I just feel fortunate that Brigid and Rebecca allowed me to miss class and come here. I do a bit of professional writing as a contributor for an online PD website called Choice Literacy. So this weekend is all about nonfiction article writing. I have already written one piece and will revise it this morning. Our day is filled with gobs of writing time, meeting briefly with our reflection group, eating and walking the grounds and the breakwater. Oh, did I mention that I am away for a whole weekend without my kids AND I have a room all to myself? Yes, I am more than a bit giddy.
I wanted to share my digital piece. I really want to make book trailers with my students so I explored some platforms. Some required money or seemed too difficult for my 4th graders to use. So I settled on Haiku Deck. Here is my book trailer for The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane.
I hope you have a fabulous class. Rock those presentations!!
