This year has been a journey of finding peace…
The Other Side of the Equation
A peek at a glorious day for a preschooler
Guess who my students named as their greatest fans?
The death of a close friend’s child combined with end of the year responsibilities means no slice this week. I’ll try to get back later in the week to read all of the wonderful posts I know are waiting here.
Sorry to hear about this Catherine!
EOY responsibilities…scary that it’s getting to be that time!
How tragic! Such unspeakable loss. Please join us when you’re ready. We’ll be here.
Wh are we learning science in language arts?
Thinking about how we weave passion, purpose and play into the lives of students.

I’m not crafty, that’s no secret! I did come up with this for my son’s teachers. :)
I’ve missed my every day writing habit!

Do you have a dog you love? This is a story about two dogs I met in one day. One at the Humane Shelter and one on a woman’s arm.
A happy appreciation day
Life put a halt to my busyness and gave me time to write. http://www.raisingreadersandwriters.com/2013/05/receiving-and-accepting-gift-of-time.html
A night of swirling thoughts brought about a poem that can probably attach itself to many instances in life.
Late today – internet down all morning. I see that Michelle & I wrote similar slices about our girls!
A beautiful day at the Ohio State University Graduation with President Obama speaking. http://familytrove.blogspot.com/2013/05/the-ohio-state-university-commencement.html

(a couple more may appear later tonight, but my 6th period decided to throw me a surprise birthday party, so we didn’t end up blogging in class!)
Goohttp://ateachersruminations.blogspot.com/2013/05/esl-class-ruminations.htmld morning everybody!
Here’s my SOL for this week – reflecting on my ESL class.
Woops! Somehow that didn’t come out right.
Here’s the URL again http://ateachersruminations.blogspot.com/2013/05/esl-class-ruminations.html

I’m starting a writing prompt experiment with number photos and this is the first: http://iheartpurplestuff.blogspot.com/2013/05/eleven-lines-about-me.html
Appreciation makes the world a much better place! These are a few of my teachers that I appreciate!
If the shoe fits…
Time to celebrate! My 100th post! :)
Surviving state testing, day one:
A day in the life of state testing (or, how to survive a day of state testing)- day one, with three to go:
Just realized that I had not left the link to my slice!
Observing screen free week
Do you have kid-lingo that has become a regular part of your lexicon?
A new text features anchor chart for our non-fiction explorations in kindergarten!
Being in a place by chance…or by design? A slice about being exactly where you need to be when you need to be there.
Trying out the Slice of Life! Love reading others.
This week title: Ramblings of Lobsters, Brownstones and Poetry over the John.
Trying to figure it all out!
I continue my quest to encourage my students to share the gift of words with those they love.
It’s the little things . . that really count!
A little bit of spring…
I’m having a baby… today.
After a rough day at school, reflecting that today will be a better day. http://readwriteandreflect.blogspot.com/2013/05/slice-of-life-all-will-be-well.html
A slice about unexpected kindness. xo
I was going to write about the teachers who influenced me for Teacher Appreciation week (I can still do it next week), but I had to share my adventure with my daughter on Sunday: http://kaymcgriff.edublogs.org/2013/05/07/what-floats-on-the-river/
My current obsession leads to some reflections on the benefits of spoilers.. http://www.mariaselke.com/2013/05/new-to-who-thing-about-spoilers.html
My girls had a birthday – in a blink they are now three!
Thinking of what could have been too often lately.
Inspiration is every where. My students and I wrote odes to ordinary things. http://reflectionsontheteche.wordpress.com/2013/05/07/ode-to-the-ordinary/
An honest reflection about Screen Free Week. At first I thought I failed miserably, but then I realized that my failures were actually learning opportunities.
I love how honest you are here and think the idea of reduced screen time is a good one. I struggle with the fact that so much of my reading and writing is done on screen….and I view those as daily necessaries in my life! How do we balance screen time and still do the things we love…reading and writing. Is all screen time evil?
What I LOVE about this post is that you saw this student for who HE is and you honored his passion. There are so many Bryan’s out there who go unnoticed.
Thanks for posting!

Definitely not all of it is evil! In fact, I think so much of it makes us more efficient. It’s when it takes over our ability to care for others that it goes south.
Getting back on track with my slices. I’m not sure where April went. Check out my student’s Ironman suit: http://portable-teacher.blogspot.com/2013/05/bryans-ironman-suit.html
I tried to unplug a bit more last week, but it was hard. I did, however, take the time to see what was around me a little more closely!
Join me on the equipment today!
Writing for a yearbook. Preview the page and read the comments on the writing process. Thank you to Betsy for inspiration.
My thoughts have been consumed by bicycles, writing and the need to be brave.
I am just about ready to pack for home. In fact, Tuvia is at it now and soon will be pushing me off the couch. Of course the sun is shining as we leave, and probably warm out there as well. It’s been a fantastic two weeks in Finland and soon the documentary will be created and up on You tube. I’ve learned so much. Yes, we do have a lot to learn from Finland but even more we have our issues that are being swept under the rug. POVERTY! Finland has 3.2 we have 21.3%
Anyway, I have a lot to think about on my 8 hour ride home.
Enjoy your day,
I can’t wait to read more about what you learned. Have a safe trip home!
I for one, am pretty interested in that poverty thing. I can’t wait to see your You Tube. xo
I’m in the midst of a new adventure, and have plans for a June adventure too. Exciting stuff!
