a little bit of serendipity!

Serendipity, such a fun word if I don’t say so myself!

Such a fun word that I think I need to say it again,

serendipity,

and again,

serendipity,

and again,

serendipity!

School began three weeks ago and while some people were feeling the serendipity, others perhaps not so much.  Me, well, I was somewhere in the middle. I guess you could say I was betwixt and between.

Then the students arrived with new backpacks, new sneakers, new outfits, and all smiles! ~serendipity!

Then the readers entered my newly redecorated room and they noticed the big and not so big changes. And they said, “Mrs. Warntz, our room looks awesome!” ~serendipity!

Then they started to browse the bookshelves and ask,

“Can I borrow this book?”

“Can I place this book in my book bin?”

“Oh, I read this book, it’s a great one!”

~serendipity, serendipity, serendipity!

Then it was time for independent reading, sitting in a comfy chair and choosing that just right stuffed animal to read along with them. ~serendipity!

And the excitement was building when it was time to add our book recommendations to our “LOVE THAT BOOK” wall. ~serendipity!

And last but not least, we’ll end it with the message board that reminds us we all can use a little bit of…

  1. Amy, you got me thinking about that lovely word and I found this eclectic definition in “The Urban Dictionary”: Serendipity – A very good coincidence, often leading to something really awesome.

    Your good organisation and thoughtful displays created the positive responses and I can just feel the excitement you’ve created!

  2. This wasn’t just a case of serendipity, but the careful plotting of a teacher to bring joy into each child’s reading life. What joy exudes in the words and photos!

  3. Your unquenchable thirst for words, your elation and energy — that combination must make for a lively, inviting classroom, Amy, as the photographic evidence shows. Thanks for sharing this Tuesday-morning spark.

  4. I just retired so this is my first year of NOT being a reading specialist. You’re room looks so inviting and I your post brought me back to special times and the fun of getting kids excited about reading. Have a great year!
