I am new to the world of blogging. I have read other people’s blogs and decided to write one of my own. I have no idea how often I will write, but if I know this blog is hanging over me, it will give me a reason to write often.
I am a 2nd grade teacher, and this summer I became a San Diego Area Writing Project fellow. During this invitational summer institute, participants were encouraged to write daily. I enjoyed discovering the possibilities through writing since I did not see myself as a writer before the institute. When the summer institute was over I vowed to continue the routine of writing daily. The institute ended almost four weeks ago, and sadly, I have only written in my journal two times.
Another thing SDAWP fellows were encouraged to do was to sign up for social sharing sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram . I decided to join Twitter and Instagram. I started participating in the “Photo A Day” challenge started by the director of SDAWP. This challenge is something I have enjoyed doing and have been able to post consistently. The photo challenge this week was on #curves. So, when they presented a new challenge I thought it would probably be best to start a blog. That way I could write down many of my thoughts and ideas. The new challenge will be about mentor texts and how we use them in our classroom.
Here I am now. A newbie in the blogging world. But, I had to start somewhere. I think the hardest part so far was trying to think of a title for my blog! I had different titles to start, but this one stuck. Pink is my favorite color and the term tickle me pink means to be very pleased. I hope that people who visit are somehow pleased and entertained by what I have posted. And, I in turn will be pleased for having done so.
