I have learned a lot from reading my kindergarten students’ slices this month…
A student A Teacher
Since we are near the end – I decide to try a poem. I write poems for myself but never for the public eye. ( except for one set of poems put into a hand made book a few years ago) This one needs more work I think but it seemed to fit my theme of students and learning this month.
Here goes – first poem to the public

Remembering, before I crawl into bed, to post what I wrote as we left for the airport this morning.
Oops–can’t believe I forgot to link
Day 29–hard to believe the month is almost over. Today’s post: High School. Where the love of reading goes to die.
I hate going down this far to post…because I see all sorts of posts I want to read on the way as I scroll past them…afraid that I will forget to go back and read them…as I sit here in the rubble…ooh, I should have called this rubble to rubles or rubble to rubies. That would have been cute. But I didn’t.

This slice of life is a very personal one. It is about something that affects me and thousands of other people (mainly women) every day.
This post is about something that can change young women’s lives forever.

Shhhh. I’ve been doing a little secret poetry project in the hallways …. Don’t tell anyone ….
Well, hopefully the blog frustration is over. My husband decided to switch me over to Blogger… (thanks to all of you who stuck with me through the pain) I’ll be slowly moving my old posts here over the next few days, if you want to visit any that you missed because the blog was being fruity.
Today’s post is about my “one little word” for the year..
My weekly gratitude list. :)
In my grad school class tonight, students will be crawling around the floor and I will be thinking of my sister-in-law.

My thoughts after facing my fears and rereading a book that I loved in childhood. http://www.shewritesbecause.blogspot.com/2012/03/memories-of-marshmallows.html
I have failed to meet expectations. I did not meet the SOLS challenge. At 12:20 PM in the wee hours of the morning, I wrote my post for Wednesday. Yes, I was 20 minutes late. My slice didn’t make it in.
Here is Wednesday’s too late post about writing in the midst of chaos and frustration and business: http://meanderingmaya.blogspot.com/2012/03/still-i-write.html
Here is Thursday’s post venting my frustration about not meeting the SOLS deadline and feeling like a failure, as one more thing adds stress to my week taking me closer to going over the edge:
This, too, shall pass. I think I can. I think I can. I think I can. If that little blue engine could do it, so can I. Now I must sleep.
This is a slice about frustration. “Tell Them to Bring Their Tools”
A post about slicing!
