Collecting stories, light, and other things...


Today second-graders learned we would start writing poetry next week.
A small cheer rose from the group.

"Can we bring in shells and rocks and things, like we did in first grade and
put them on the tables?" inquired little Miss S.

My smile stretched.

"Hmm... like for inspiration?" I inquired.
"Yes!"  said the little girl in a bright tone.

And there you have it.  Homework tonight?
To go on a nature walk and find small things that
catch your eye.

What small thing caught your eye today?
My eyes smiled today when I caught the light in someone's eyes sparkle.

Time to go for a walk.
