And So Today They Begin. Young Adult Literacy Labs @CWPFairfield. Bring On The Big Imaginations

The 15 teachers have been in the rhythm and flow of personal writing, and this week we begin the first of ten young adult literacy labs for youth, 3rd - 12th grade. First up? Little Lab For Big Imaginations, a writing extravaganza for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade writers taught by the incredible Dr. Ryan Colwell and his team.

This year the kids are exploring two genres, poetry and fables, and will have plenty of interaction with the campus and the teachers in the invitational.

The signs have been made, the nut-free snacks have been purchased, the supplies have arrived, and the enthusiasm is at an all time high.

Day one is a jitters day as everyone tries to find the right location, to make sure the kids are okay in a new environment and that we really did cross all the t's and dot all the i's.

Here's to everyone involved on this July Monday (and best of luck to Lossine who is heading to Field of Dreams for the week to teach middle school youth in a special literacy program aligned with soccer. Skills4Life all the way (and ah, man...looks like I'll have to cook again tonight. Again? Ugh).
