  1. This made me laugh. I would love to see my thoughts written down, just to see what I think as I am teaching. It all goes in such a blur that sometimes I am all too aware that by being in the moment, I have lost many thoughts. On the other hand, it is often my pen that I have lost, too!!

  2. Melva – I love our “Practicing Silence” Work. Great for the child who just wants a few minutes of quiet, but also a valuable work for the young child who needs a reminder on how to be quiet.

    Annicles – I really need one of those pen-necklace things. Or maybe a pen on a retractable cord….
