This morning I am going to dash to the grocery store for more coffee house supplies. We're having our poetry slam at school today. We, my students and I, will drink hot beverages, speak poetry into the air, and play the bongos (in between poetry selections). I shall be the barista. It's hard to wait on each student, but it's fun because in the past I've discovered that some people have never been waited on by an apron clad granny. They like it.
The best parts of teaching for me are the kids (of course) and the classroom. I love having my own little nest at school.
So instead of sitting here (I like to!) I will be hustling around taking drink orders. Blueberry tea? Decaf coffee? Cream and sugar? I'll let you know how it goes, but after four different groups of kids, by tomorrow afternoon I will definitely be ready to take off my apron!
The predicted weather here is COLD and snowy. Yikes! I am so happy that Sunshine is hanging on the bike hooks in our garage, reminding me that spring will come and summer will be glorious.
Maybe you could read a bit of poetry to yourself today. The Poetry Foundation is a wonderful website.
Words. They are the best food.
