Porches and Patio Fun - #SOL18 - 3/28/18
**I'm so grateful to the #SOL community for welcoming me each and every time I post a slice. Thank you so very much to the team at Two Writing Teachers for coordinating and hosting this slicing community for the entire month of March for the Slice of Life Challenge. You all rock!!**
*During this year's challenge, my plan is to reflect on a slice of my life from that day, or the day before, and write about it. No theme to tie my writing together this year, no plans ahead of time. Just glimpses into slices of my days. Not having a plan is a very uncomfortable place for me, both as a person and a writer, so fingers crossed for the 3 remaining days!
(My slice is more late than normal tonight as I just got home from the event I wanted to slice about.)
Tonight was a gathering of our Porches and Patios group. We have evolved over the years: we began as a group refining our use of technology to enhance our instructional practices in the classroom. And we always had chips and queso dip to eat, and we would gather on each others' porches or patios. Nowadays, it is far more about the food (tonight had an amazing Mexican food theme), the conversation, the learning, the laughter, and the fun.
There is no way to capture all the special, and often times hysterical, moments of our evening together, but here are a few of the conversational snippets overheard tonight:
On Voxer, is that "tap to talk"?
Passion planner, panda planner, or bullet journal ?
Got it on Amazon - 'Something Wish' pen holder
Sketchnoting - yo need to get your head around process vs perfect
The Kids Should See This
Your name is _____, but you told me to call you 'Hot Mama'
We're going to ride fancy class with air waitresses
Anello backpack - is it a backpack or a wine carrier or both??
The 3rd piece of pie makes it
Funny thing said by teacher: 'Why are you licking your chair?'
Funny thing heard by teacher: 'Keep your balls low to the ground; it's windy today."
It's not a private school. They can't tell me what to wear.
Winky faces - what's with them? Send or not send?
You need to fix your face
Did you ever go to that jeweler?
At what point do flip flops become inappropriate?
You need to see these Kid Snippet videos
So, that's it... a random sampling of some of our conversations tonight.
Thanks for stopping by to read this silliness.
