Back-to-School I go

Writers Workshop!

Next week I'm working with fifteen young, eager 6th grade writers from Mrs Spotts' reading class at The Denver Waldorf School.  

With our notebooks, we'll sneak outside and play around with the sounds of autumn in the city. And we'll do our best to find new and inventive ways to describe those findings.   I'm not worried. The English language has the largest vocabulary of all the languages. We'll be okay.

Children hear the hidden stories in just about everything. Can't wait to listen to their discoveries...

I'll post some of their musings later in the week!

For girls of all and everything.

Dream in full SPECTRUM;  ask the BiG questions;  PONDER;  
wake in time to watch a PINK sunrise;  reconsider;  give your full 
attention;  shine from the inside;   if the crown fits...then by all means;
create a cause;  CHORTLE;  show ‘em who’s boss;  redefine pretty; allow to simmer, then stir;  seize the day and take NO prisoners........
