This past Sunday, as I looked ahead at the upcoming week, today loomed large. Not only would my school be participating in Read Across America Day, but after the kids finished their half day, I would be conferencing with fifteen different sets of parents.
So, when April Jones Prince retweeted a tweet from @serita_nicole about a teacher in her school who had made personalized bookmarks for each student, I wondered if I could do it. Could I pull off conference notes and a set of personalized bookmarks for Thursday?
Well, thanks to some snow day magic, it happened. Today, I stood outside my classroom door and gave 23 students personalized bookmarks that had a book recommendation for them based on their one-little-word goal for the year.
And I did it in style wearing my book scarf and my book socks, gifts from last year's class.
Okay, six conferences down, ten more opportunities to spread even more reading joy.

My 2023 one little word goal is PLAY. So, one of the ways I'm playing is by joining in the Two Writing Teachers' Slice of Life Story Challenge. My first post will be March 1st. Happy reading!
