This week I took the words from my students’ writing. They wrote about their hopes, wishes, goals or fears for 2012. I spent the week scoring them with our district’s new writing across the curriculum rubric, and kept a list, then Len scratched anything over twelve. My initial intent was to select words with multiple meanings or more than one syllable.
It didn’t dawn on me until I’d already sent out early words that it was the third Sunday of the month. Yes, already! Look for a baker’s dozen next week, instead. If I ever get it together, I’ll forget where I put it…so it’s best to leave things in shambles.
Good luck with the words,
