Why Didn’t I Think of That?

Reading through the schedule for tomorrow’s Saturday Reunion at Teachers College in New York, I am struck by a thought that haunts me. Why didn’t I think of that? I have that thought again and again when I read these titles.  Things like:

Tap the Power of Two of Our Favorite Writing Units: You Can Lean on the Westward Expansion and American Revolution Units Whether or Not Your Kids Are Studying Those Topics!

Of course you can!  Brilliant.  Why didn’t I think of that?

I think the best writing does this as well.  I have thought this again and again as I have read Slice of Life postings across this month of writing each and every day.  Thank you Slicers for opening up so many new ways to view the world, think about writing and for supporting my attempts.  I can’t wait to meet you in person tomorrow!



About Be Strong. Be Courageous. Be You

    i love the titles that make me go “Duh!” because there just isn’t enough time to slow down and THINK when you’re busy draining the swamp for the alligators! However, it’s also great to hear more details! TODAY!

    I don’t know how in the world you can decide which session to attend, so many great choices. There are lots of great examples writing to try in the slices.
