Constant Comment

My commitment to my students is that I will read and comment on any piece that anyone posts for our writing challenge. All 82 kids had time in class today to kick-off their efforts, and though I know the number of posts will dwindle as the days pass, tonight that's a lot of replies to compose!

Fortunately, as I read through it tonight, as always the writing is warm and disarming, so personal and sweet that it doesn't take long to remember why we do this.


  1. Wow! That's a lot of commenting! Good luck!

  2. That's a huge commitment on your part--kudos! I'll be lucky if I remember to post each day during March!

  3. No, it doesn't take long to be affirmed at all! I'm glad you are writing again this March. Your blog link brought a smile to my face.
    Happy writing (and commenting),

  4. Tracey - and you post captured a sixth grade writer so nicely! Warm and disarming, personal and sweet - totally describes these young ones we work with!
