On feeling good. . .

The other day I posted this quote on the PageTurners face book page;
My spelling is Wobbly. It's good spelling but it Wobbles, and the letters get in the wrong places. 
― A.A. Milne

And afterward I was thinking about it, and it reminded me of something I used to do with my  literacy students at the end of the semester — list one thing they could do now that they couldn't do before.

We used to make the list into a poster, and every time I saw it, I'd smile.
It said things like:

 I can spell Wednesday. (And every time I think of this one I grin, remembering the rant this student had made about stupid spelling!)
I can fill out the bank form by myself.
I read a book on my own.
I can work out some big words without asking.
I can read my son his favorite story.
I can leave a note for my daughter. And she can read it. (That's two things)

I wish now I'd kept those posters. 


  1. Hi, I'd like to get Page Turners and sent e-mail to five days ago, but I've got no reply yet. I'd like to order from Japan. Please tell me where and how I should order.

  2. I'm so sorry for the lack of response. I'm not sure why the email hasn't been answered yet.

    I will follow it up on Monday and ensure your order is filled promptly.

    Thanks for letting me know.

  3. Thank you for your quick response!

  4. I got reply from PRACE and just ordered all the books. I'm looking forward to the arrival of your books. Thanks!

  5. Excellent. It would have been yesterday, except it was a public holiday here and the office was closed. Thanks so much for ordering the books. Hope you enjoy them.
