The best part of our classroom library: Anthologies of NaNoWriMo stories by former students! The new kids love to read them. It’s always exciting when they write about them in their reading journals, just like they do with other published work.
We all want to feel something, we all want to be someone to one another.
"In Ukraine, they say that every man must do three things to fulfill his duty: plant a tree, have a child, and build a house. I planted a tree in grade school, I had a daughter fourteen years ago, but with how the economy has been, I’m starting to fear that I’ll never have the money to build a house."
"What was the happiest moment you ever spent with your daughter?"
"I taught her to walk on a small playground near our house. I’d hold onto her hands and walk her around slowly. She was laughing so hard, and she was making noises the entire time, I could sense she was trying to tell me something."
"What do you think she was trying to tell you?"
"Just how happy she was to be there with me."
