sunday letters

WRITE your letters.
LINK them with mine.
SHARE the love via comments!

Greetings friends! I'm here for some fun, thoughtful, snarky, heartfelt and/or whatever-attitude-you'd-like-to-take letters. Do you want to write your own? I hope so! Compose your post and link them with mine!

Dear Lucy Calkins,
This week I came across a quote you had in your Guide to the Reading Workshop book of your new Units of Study: Step with me into this series, into this effort to give young people the richest possible education as readers. I love that, and I totally believe in everything your work stands for. I have seen it transform the children in the school I work in. Thank you for authentic, rigorous curriculum, now differentiated across the grades.

Dear D100 Literacy Coaches,
I'm really looking forward to working with you again this year. I love the idea of visiting each others' schools and can't wait to come to all your schools. Thank you for being there for me as a sounding board and for all the knowledge you continue to share with me. Hopefully we can spend some time together on Tuesday!
:-) Michelle

Dear Coaching Bloggers,
I'm so glad I keep finding more and more of you! Are there any other coaches out there who might have landed here? Please leave me a comment with your blog so I can follow you! I love the online community we continue to build and would love more coaches to collaborate with!
your future cyber coach friend :-)

Dear Paychecks,
Why am I always feeling like this....?

I mean, I don't think I'm asking too much to be able to afford all my stuff plus go on a few vacations, right? Either way, I'm going to definitely be more mindful of what I'm spending so I can make the holiday in Cabo for Christmas vacation happen for realsies.

Dear KC,
I love how you are so good at reading reviews for planning trips. "I like to read all of them. There's 4000, hang on." I know we're going to have the best Christmas holiday ever and I can't wait!
Love, Bestie

Dear FF,
I can't wait to read your first blog post! I know it's going to be great and full of such amazing knowledge and personality. I am so glad you're going to be sharing your expertise with the world!
(im)patiently waiting...
your blogging buddy

Dear LG,
I promise to put you in the Literacy Scoop more often! Until then, will shout-outs here suffice? :-)
Love, MB

Dear friends who have checked on me repeatedly over the past few weeks,
Your texts, messages, calls, notes, hugs, stories, and support has meant more to me than you know. Thank you for taking time to think about me and check on me. I am so thankful for each of you and lucky to have you in my life!

That's all from me friends! Can't wait to read your letters!


  1. How dare you not include LG in your Literacy Scoops! :) I know exactly how you feel about paychecks...

  2. Oh Michelle.... I could have written a similar letter to my paycheck! I don't even dream of vacations (yet). I dream of the day when I don't have to check my bank balance every time I want to take my kids out for ice cream or just eat out at a family-style sit down restaurant! That is my current financial dream!

  3. Continue to rely on the support of your friends, and your own strength/resilience to keep moving forward. I have a set of coasters that I bought myself after my divorce six years ago that say YOU CAN'T REWIND LIFE. You can write a new song and keep singing it though! Thanks so much for this lovely link-up! I look forward to the next one!
