Day 23 - Blog Name Poetry

As the Giveaway Guru, I get the opportunity to see the names of all the blogs in this community every day.  I have been enjoying the creativity of each name.  There really are some great ones.  There are many that I wonder about.  Where did that name come from?  What does that name mean?  I have been thinking about how I could use those names to write something.  It's been nagging at me since the beginning of the month.  Today, after 23 days, it finally came together.  Check it out...maybe you will see your own blog name in there somewhere!

it's what we teach everystudenteveryday.
We say writereadlearn because
we want our students to lead
We ask them to

We want to get them into the
We want to teach them that

We want to wakeupandwrite

We read even though there are
We write about fireflytrails
and chartingbythestars
and we teachtoinspire.
We teach about
We work hard at squeezingitallin.
We work hard to raisealithuman

Some days we livelifeindaydreams
of sandandstone.
Some days our mantra is
And even though we know that
we have alittlefaithandalotofheart
and journey on.
We share our coffeefueledmusings
and dance our teacherdance

We are teachingyoungwriters,
