We’ve been out of school today to honor the work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Last week in my library, we read one of the nominees on the Arkansas Diamond Primary Book Award list. It was a heart-breaking topic, but a good story for students to know and talk about. If you haven’t read it, grab a copy. (The author is Michael S. Bandy.)
At this hour, the evening news is taunting us with….the possibility of a snow day! What is it that makes the possibility of a snow day so exciting — whether you’re 5 or… well, a WHOLE lot older than 5?? My mother-in-law from upper Michigan is visiting — AND scoffing at our snow possibility! Her comment… “You get out of school FOR THAT MUCH?!” (Er, or that little.) Yes. Yes, we do. 😉 (Love you, Marjorie!)
I’ve been under the weather for a few weeks, so I’m especially praying in the “please let’s stay home” direction! I would love to shake this before I head back again, but we’ll see! The little graphic below was inspired by conversations overheard in my library media center last week! Oh, how I love my littles!
