After sitting in a PD all day on co-teaching, my brain is dead. My teacher brain and writer brain can't seem to occupy the same space at the same time. I wonder if that is why I don't incorporate enough creative writing into my lessons? I usually blame that on Common Core these days, but maybe since I have a difficult time writing creatively during the school year, I don't ask my students to do it enough either. The last two years on the end-of-year evaluations I gave students to fill out, even some of my reluctant writers made the comment that they wish we had done more creative writing. I need to remember that this year instead of letting myself get bogged down, but it's difficult to squeeze it all in!
