This is poem #6 in my series of poems about books and reading and words.
Students - To find a writing idea yesterday, I pretended that I was a little girl again. I imagined I was playing mommy, copying my own mom. What would a mom do? Read aloud, of course. As a little-girl-mom, I imagined reading aloud to my cat, and today's poem was born. Try this sometime. Remember way back to another time in your life. Pretend you are there, and discover writing topics as they float across your brain-canvas.
Teachers - this week I made my first Xtranormal movie. One-and-a-half minutes long, it is about how some schools are losing read aloud time to other programs. The title of the movie is "Teacher, Will You Read Us a Book?"
Parents and teachers - if you don't know it, don't miss Jim Trelease's work about read aloud.
