Today I’m joining
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!
