Boy. – SOL Day 17

Counting down 10 things I’m thinking about*:

10 steps to my locker

9 blocks to walk home

8 months until my birthday

7 weeks until the crazy aunt comes to visit

6 days until I see my Dad again

5 times I looked at Melanie today

4 books I need to return to the library

3 assignments I haven’t turned in

2 flights of stairs to our front door

1 little sister I can’t wait to see when I get home.

  1. This is a great way to consider what our students are thinking about during the school day. It’s been so long since I was 12. I always try to be mindful of their thoughts; and this poem is a wonderful glimpse into their thought life.

    1. Lori, what perfect sentiments. So true. I think I’ll use this as an optional warm-up come Monday after Spring Break. A fun little thing, giving a jump of the heart.

      Thank you!
