Duck into Third Grade

This site is the bee's knees




So much in teaching
upon walking
a tight
striving for
encouraging each
child to be
all the while
accepting them
the way
they are

(Thank you William Carlos Williams for the jumpstart!)

  1. Such a beautiful poem Mrs. Barnes! Be sure to post a link to your blog on the Two Writing Teacher’s website. Your post reminds me of Rita Peirson’s TED talk where she asks the question, “How do we raise a child’s academic achievement and self-esteem at the same time?” Thank you for writing this. I needed to be reminded of these truths today.

    • I love your new do! I tried to post a link but instead of a clink it might of been a clunk LOL. Kate told me when she clicked on the Epic Events post it did not let her go to the blog : ? Thanks for the encouragement to write everyday!
