Often when I tuck my son into bed he will ask me, "what was your best interaction with me today?" Sometimes it is easy to answer, other times it is difficult.
I like that he is reflecting on his day and that he asks me to join in with him. Personal reflection is one way that I work at being the person I want to be. I am glad that my son is starting this reflection as well. I wish I had learned it as early as he is learning it.
Reflecting on good things is soothing for me. So I get pretty excited when Jennifer @ Rowdy in First Grade fires up her party. It's her "Tell Me Something Good" party. Something good from home and another from school.
My good from home: tonight I am going on a date with my husband. Yes, it is a date on a school night. We have tickets to see "Jersey Boys." And we are going to a sushi place beforehand for dinner. Neither one of us has tried sushi before. We will be sitting near some friends from my school and I am looking forward to a great evening.
My good from school: I am loving how my LA block of time is transforming into an amazing learning time. Some Phonics Dance, some handwriting, some Reader's Workshop (Kim Adsit's unit called Revving Up), some Writer's Workshop (Deanna Jump's Writing Through the Year), and some small groups. I don't think the small groups are where I need them to be, but I am totally a work in progress.
Hop on over to read more good things. I would love to read your good things--on your blog, or in my comments! Have a great week!
