Party Day

Today I’m joining Leigh Anne’s party over at her A Day in the Life blog.

Here’s what I’m bringing to the party:

A Favorite Book: A kind of impossible choice, there are so many books to love. One that I’ve enjoyed recently is the picture book After the Fall by Dan Santat. Everyone (well, almost) has heard of Humpty Dumpty and will enjoy the surprise twist at the end- and the fun illustrations and play on words along the way.

A Favorite Person: I will bring my fellow ESL Teacher, Myrna. She was my “roomie” when we traveled from Indy to Tampa for the WIDA conference last fall. We had a great time together, especially on our cruise along the bay on the Pirate Taxi. We found a great local restaurant, had a long, leisurely dinner, followed by the most heavenly cup of coffee (Cuban coffee with cream)I have ever had.

A Favorite Food: I’ll bring good old chocolate chip cookies- home-baked, of course. And peanut butter cookies, too. That’s what my family always asks for. Forget the fancy food.

A Favorite Song: Not a song, but I will bring the mariachi band, Sol Jalisciense, who came to our school this year. They will bring a mix of traditional Mexican music and Tex-Mex hits everyone will recognize. They will surely get us dancing. They are fun and lively!

A Surprise: Mini-posters with a positive quote from the Daily Wonder app. I’ll pick some that have been illustrated by students. They are so great!

I think we will all have a good time!

    I am glad you joined the party. The variety of things people have brought is awesome. The mariachi band is unexpected and I can’t wait to dance.

    Welcome to the party! I’m ready for the homemade chocolate chip cookies!

  4. What a fun post! I hadn’t seen the party post before. Think I may join myself tomorrow! BTW, my family always asks for chocolate chip cookies, too. My boys volunteered me to bake about a million batches for parties as they were growing up!

    Yay! So glad you are coming to the party. I hate to admit this, but I have not read After the Fall yet. I know, I know – shame on me. I love the idea for the Wonder app mini quotes! What a special surprise. I just watched the movie last week over spring break. It was everything I wanted it to be. Thanks for joining us!

    I haven’t read After the Fall or seen the movie, Wonder yet. The mariarchi band will be the perfect addition to ur party atmosphere. And homemade chocolate chip cookies will be a great hit!

  7. Now that’s food I’d LOVE to see at a party! We LOVED After the Fall. My Kindergarteners thought it was hilarious. Was stunned it didn’t win a Caldecott. See you at the party, even if it’s in it’s last couple of hours! LOL!

  8. This was fabulous! Wish I’d seen it before I wrote today…maybe I’ll keep the fiesta going tomorrow! 🙂 Your writing is so fun to read!

    I love your choices! I joined the party yesterday and am amazed at all the different things people are bringing. Wouldn’t it be fantastic if the party were real? 🙂 🙂 ~JudyK
