It's About That Time! TeachersWrite

Happy 4th of July! Or actually, the 5th of July, but who cares. I have lapsed a bit this week and skipped a couple of days of writing. Oops! I did try to make up for it and write for longer on another day.

Tomorrow officially begins TeachersWrite, an online writing camp/group/workshop for teachers to improve their writing and join a community of other teacher writers. So if you are looking for some learning that you can do from home, with no risk, join me on this adventure.
You can also join their group on FaceBook or check out Jen Vincent's blog Teach Mentor Texts to introduce yourself. I'm excited and a little nervous about TeachersWrite, but am ready for a challenge.

Here is a poem I wrote the other day after leaving the pool with my hubby and kids. I tend to be the floating mom, the one who likes to observe and not really play in the pool. My hubby on the other hand is their personal water park.

Mom vs. Dad at the Pool

             Mom                                                        Dad
lays out in the hot sun                                 pretends to be a surfboard
floats and skims the top of the water               acts like a shark about to bite
wears a hat                                           wears a hat
but doesn't want to get it wet                      but will dive under the water anyway
cheers on belly flops and cannonballs             yells at the kids about running
tans easily                                             burns to a crisp
lets the kids float with her                          allows kids to use him as a diving board
visits often                                                  Dad at the pool is a novelty

          Score- 3                                                        Score- 4

                                         Dad Wins!
