And, I got to experience it with several of my besties.
AND, Oprah approached our little group afterwards from the back seat of her SUV via her security guard.
We almost didn't stop. See, we were afraid it was the press and we were given strict orders not to leak anything to the press until the show aired that Monday. The security guard urged us to stop. "Ladies, you are going to want to stop."
The pic is blurry because the random lady who took it was all verklemmt. As were we...we probably would not have been very good at taking any one else's picture either. I am the second one from the left.
Do you ever have your kiddos track their thinking on sticky notes? Ever have them do it as homework? I do, sometimes, with some groups. When I do, sometimes I put the sticky notes on the particular pages I want the kids stop at to record their thinking. Other times I just put a few sticky notes on the cover and they pick and choose where to place them. Depends on the book. We often share and discuss their thoughts the next day. The discussions get fairly lively sometimes depending on the text!
If this sounds like something you'd like to try with your students, I have a note you can send home. There are two on the page so you save some trees. :)
And...for the last of my ramblings...a super talented parent knit and crocheted this precious owl for me. I was so touched...
Have a wonderful rest of your week, friends!!
