Ruth, for offering this place for weekly reflection and celebration!
This week, I am celebrating:
* Our (somewhat) return to school. The two weeks were relaxing and refreshing, but I was ready to go back. I think my students felt the same way. Monday and Tuesday were great days of returning to our regularly scheduled lives and then the Polar Vortex arrived and we were given two more days off this week. Next week, I am hoping for a full five days.
* For Christmas Break, I asked my students to each read one chapter book...just one. When we returned on Monday, my class of 24 students had read a total of 44 chapter books over break! I was overwhelmed and thrilled! In years past, I was lucky if half of my students had read even one book. This year, I have a group of amazing readers.
* I am also celebrating this book that I am almost finished reading:
What are your celebrations this week?
