Being a special education teacher has its perks. One is the chance I get to be in several classrooms to see different teaching styles and activities. My days are NEVER boring. I love getting to see all the creative ideas that teachers come up with and to work with a great bunch of teachers.
Recently, my fifth and sixth grade students started
writing persuasive letters. They started making a list of ideas (I love
lists so this was great for me). Now they have narrowed their ideas to one. It is amazing to see the
difference in the two grade levels. A few ideas are crazy, but most of the students have put a lot of thought into what they are writing about.
Today as I sat and talked to one of the fifth
graders about his writing, he inspired me to write my own persuasive letter. He was writing
about different school lunches and it made me think of my own cooking. So, along
with the kiddos I will be writing a persuasive letter to my husband about
getting a variety of food (if you know him you know this will be interesting).
My husband likes his limited menu and that is it. I will have to come up with a really good argument to change his ways.
Letter to come. I will be working through the steps with the kids.
