This is My Jam: A Slice of Life

Saturday, March 28, 2015

Writing teachers need to write themselves.
I am participating in the Slice of Life 2015 Challenge, 
where I attempt to write stories and narratives about moments in my life.
I apologize if this blog post veers off the informative "literacy lens" I usually write through.
This month I am pretending to be a writer, for my students' benefit (and my own).
Writers write. 

I am exhausted today.  After a long week, and a day filled with birthday parties and watching children play, I am out of steam.  So, in my laziness, I turned on my Dancing with the Stars episode from this week and the theme was "My Jam Monday."  

So, here are my jams.
