This is my school desk... No, this isn't what it looks like half way through a busy day, this is how I leave it when I go home. During the day, it is even worse. No matter how hard I try, I just can't keep it tidy and neat. I envy other teacher's desks, with their spot for everything, colour-coded order.
Since I just finished a poetry unit with my 3rd Graders, I decided to try out a haiku poem.
Piles of teacher life.
Post-its of unfinished lists.
Waits till tomorrow.
On reflection, now I know why my students enjoyed writing poetry with no rules. Conforming to rules is much harder!
