The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news, a post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things received, and share news about what is coming up on the blog for the week ahead. To get in on the Sunday funday, see the rules here: Sunday Post Meme. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The first two weeks of school I was hearing grumping and complaining, “Why do we have to write?” *whine whine whine*
This week, though? They were thrilled that we wrote! We only wrote on Monday and Friday because we had other warm ups, but when I tell them to wrap up their entry they start complaining they’re not finished!! Now that is a good complaint. 🙂
My kids are learning poetry – terms and examples – and we are looking at different pieces of poetry. They have their first test on Wednesday! When I was their age I didn’t get poetry at all. Now that I’m older, though, I am very in tune with poetry. Perhaps I’ll post a few of my pieces….

I wish I’d been pushed more to write when I was younger. Oh well. I write a good bit now and that counts, right? I’m not familiar with the books that you got this week, but I hope you enjoy them!

Have a great reading week 😉
Dogs can drive you crazy that way! Cats get mad and seek revenge but dogs get their feelings hurt. You talking about your students writing reminded me of this class I had in college. It was a Tuesday Thursday class and each class we had to have a 1 page essay arguing a point we had gone over the class before. I got more out of that class than any other because it really helped me learn how to organize my thoughts coherently and quickly. I wish I had dome something like that in 7th grade! Have a great week!
