And Happy Anniversary to my hubby of 21 years. I think you are pretty cool, too!

We just finished our first unit in writing: Launching Writer's Workshop & published our first piece. So, I took a break from those lessons to have a little fun. Today, I began writing time with the poem Bandaids by Shel Silverstein. It reminds me so much of first graders who need a bandaid for the smallest of boo-boos. Following the poem, I wrote about a small moment when I got hurt falling down the front steps on my way to school one day. Of course, I had to mention how Mr. Todd (that's what they call my hubby & they think he is the coolest) ran to the rescue with bandaids! Following my story, I began drawing my setting and then pulled out 2 colorful bandaids. I placed theme on the paper to represent me and one on the paper to represent Mr. Todd. I quickly added arms, legs, and wiggly eyes. I heard giggles and other signs of excitement. They couldn't wait to start their own story.
