Thankful Thursday #1 in March 2013

I am thankful for:

  • Fellow slicers who have taught me so much in the last six days
  • Reminders to see my students
  • Teachers who write with their students 
  • A fellow teacher's answer to prayer: she has now made it past 32 weeks in her pregnancy!
  • Students who write and share their journey into writing with me!
  • Church that speaks about generosity towards our community--not just toward our own church
  • Coworkers who share their joys, struggles and laughter with me
  • Friends who volunteer their time to help me with testing
  • Students who ask me: "Did you miss me?" when I don't see them for a day.
  • And of course, every blogger who has commented or read my posts this week!

  6. Such an uplifting list! I have enjoyed reading your students' posts, and I agree that this challenge is an amazing eye-opener to "see" my students. (I'm not sure which is better - that or their newfound enthusiasm for writing!)
