What to Write, What to Write
I couldn't think of a thing to write about today. And then I started reading other blog posts. And I met with my writing group. And the ideas began to flow.
So now I have a long list of ideas and I can't pick just one. So here's the list--watch for upcoming posts:
1. Linda at TeacherDance wrote about her beautiful granddaughter and what a "nice" baby she is. And that moved her thinking to the nice kids in class who sometimes get the short end of the stick when we teach. Thoughts to ponder. Even though I am always an advocate for the "bad boy", there's truth to this.
2. Christy at Living posted about her school being in the news for a bullying incident and how the news stated that the school did nothing about it. Always the bad news about what happens in school. She went on to share a very nice thing that someone at her school did. Much better news for me.
I've avoided writing about an incident at our school and the way it was handled in the press and community. But maybe now is the time. I don't know. But I know it's definitely time for some good news!
3. Ruth and Stacey both brought tears to my eyes as they wrote about those little moments with their children. I really miss those days with mine. I could start capturing some of those moments in my blog.
4. And as my class of really nice kids work on their presentations for their informative speech and talk about movies they haven't seen (Star Wars, Indiana Jones, anything black and white) I could write about movies and books I think they should read or see (although I really hate that when someone tells me what I should read or see).
OK. So now I have ideas to write about. But now my time is done :o(
