Each week, I work with Nan Wilkinson’s 5th & 6th grade class at Arcadia Neighborhood Learning Center – Phoenix, AZ

Back to School
What an inspiration it is to work with the 5th & 6th graders again! There were about 8 from last year’s class, and the rest of the group of 30 is new. They liked “Stealing Smells” and then described how each saw different “images” from the story. They were great as we listed different words to describe the same thing, and how to “show” what’s going on vs. “just telling”.

After class, on the way down the hall, one of the teachers from last year stopped me. She said, “I was talking about this year’s curriculum with my class and that storytelling would be part of it. I asked who could tell me what storytelling is, and one boy raised his hand and answered, ‘Mr. Mark is storytelling!’” 
The buttons on my shirt were popping.
The greatest gift is to be remembered.
