In 2009, I was encouraged by my friends to give the 365 photo project a try. I love taking photos, and was excited about participating. The daily posts paint a brief picture of my year and open my eyes to the beauty around me. It is challenging to post a photo daily. I was successful in 2009 and 2010, but fell a few short in 2011. I'll be continuing my quest for daily photos in 2012 and look forward to sharing them here.
I was subbing in a first grade classroom today as a 1-to-1 teaching assistant. This class is well organized and the teacher has done a wonderful job teaching the kids how to learn independently at a variety of centers during their morning literacy block. The kids are engaged, obviously enjoy the work they are doing, and are learning great skills. In this photo, the girl is drawing and writing a response about the the book she listened to on a CD. How fun!
