  1. This is FANTASTIC, Margaret. I am going to try it out and I will share (eventually), promise! I love your poem, your video, your writing prompt, all of it. A great way to start my day!

    PS Michelle, I will be sorry to see this end. Maybe you will make it an annual event and teachers, I am sure will love it as they come to "count" on it.

  2. I love hearing your calm voice sharing Bayou Song today. This exercise is a wonderful way to have students get involved in poetry. Thanks for sharing and Michelle, thank you for providing such a great resource.
