I need to get in the habit of lists. I had a great idea for today to write about( on the weekend) and now it’s lost somewhere in my brain. I am committed to writing something every week regardless of the quality, even if they are lists. We tell kids to make lists, don’t we? So here is my list of random thoughts that may turn into later posts:
– I’m obsessed with the television show, Breaking Bad. Yet this week, it hit close to home when a drug raid occurred with one of our school families. I think about the kids who attend our school and their lives.
-One thing I have noticed in the Breaking Bad series is how the production is wrapping up like a grand novel. There are such little details just like in books, nothing is taken for granted.
– I am reading Gone Girl and am disappointed that it hasn’t just grabbed me and made me stay up late reading.
-I love that the first fall storms have arrived. Sunday was full old wind and rain, perfect for working on revisions.
-Our new evaluation system is driving me bonkers. So much documentation.
-I saw a really cool book on somebody’s blog about reading responses and now I can’t find it.
