Six Word Memoirs

Writing six word memoirs are one of my favorite things to write. The words must be chosen very carefully because the writer may ONLY use six! Telling a whole story in six words is a challenge, but it’s amazing when it’s done creatively! Today we will write six word memoirs in class. We will write a BUNCH of six word memoirs in class today and publish our favorites! If you’d like to share a six word memoir, I’d love to read it! (I’ll share mine later!) 

I’d Like to Thank… #13

Today is my 13th slice for the March Slice of Life Challenge on Two Writing Teachers.

That moment when you realize the headache 
that’s been plaguing you for days is finally gone!! 
Thank you! Thank you! Oh, thank you!
I don’t know where to start….
I’d like to thank my sinus medication 
for always being there for me…
oh and the neti pot! 
You really get in and get the job done! 
Thank you to one of my favorites…
the peppermint stick menthol headache relief. 
Your scent takes me away, makes my eyes water 
and you always bring me such joy! 
I couldn’t have done it without you. 
Oh, and how could I forget Excedrin Migraine. 
You’ve been with me through everything. 
I can always count on you!
 I wouldn’t be here today without you!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
(Have I been watching too many award shows lately?)

Thank you & I miss YOU already

It’s 8:10 PM on Thursday June 6, 2013. School is over. I miss the chaotic noise of the classroom already! (I can’t believe I’m saying that.) Today I received some heartfelt and beautiful letters, cards, and gifts. You have all left me so many memories. I know I’ll never forget you. Here are some pictures of the amazing gifts you gave to me today. THANK YOU!!!!!
