A single slice

can’t capture

the many writer things

that have happened this week.

 

There was the moment

when a student wrote

from a dog’s perspective

all because of a book we read.

 

there was the moment

when a student asked,

Would you give me PQPs

for my stories?

 

There was the moment

when each student

shared when they would write

this weekend.

 

There was the moment

when a student

showed me the spot in her notebook

that had a snapshot lead.

 

There was the moment

when a student gave

her notebook to a partner

to get cheers & challenges for her slice.

 

There was the moment

when a colleague

visited my classroom then gave me feedback

and said you are living it.

 

There was the moment

when this teacher saw evidence

that the effort, passion, and living of a writerly life

matter a lot in the life of student writers.
