You made my heart sing, Mrs. L

What a beautiful, reflective story. You should head over to the Facebook page for RC and post it!

Teacher Language was the most powerful tool I needed to retool in my toolbox! But it is amazing what can happen.

I tell this story all the time; when I was learning to talk to my students I held the Power of Our Words in my hands (open to the Appendix) and would flip constantly to find the right phrase for what was happening in that moment. It worked!

I also love your point about letting it go... the clean slate that margaret Wilson talks about over on the Responsive Blog. Your little firecrackers did not get out of bed this morning thinking "How can I annoy and break Mrs. L" Good for you for giving them a second chance!
