Classroom SOL challenge click here
Introduction: Hello and welcome to my blog! This is the third year I have participated in the SOLSC and also the third year for my students as well! I teach students, ages 11-14, in a multi-age classroom at The Logan School for Creative Learning in Denver, CO. This year, I am hosting students from all three middle school classes and they are participating on a volunteer basis (with a few prizes thrown in for inspiration). I'm looking forward to being part of this amazing community again!
Selfie with my Grandma
Easter Brunch at the 'old folks home' is busy but everyone had headed to the buffet to get food and I was alone with my ninety-four year old grandmother. The nervous and loud energy of my aunt and uncle and the tireless energy of my daughter and wife were muted in the other room. I so rarely get real moments with my grandmother that I knew I had to jump in while I could.
Grabbing my phone, I zipped around the table and said, "Can I take a picture of the two of us?"
"Oh yes!" she exclaimed and I saw her joy as our smiles showed up on the screen in front of us. I clicked a few selfies and soon we were choosing the best one, my grandmother thrilled with how quickly we could see the results and of some of the other pictures from earlier in the day.
"I wish I could hold these in my hand." I assured her we would get them printed off for her in the next couple of days. I know I will make double copies of this one because I'm very aware that we have only so many slices of life left to share together.
