I teach sixth grade and I am also the technology liaison with the Western Massachusetts Writing Project. As an educator and a writer, I try to explore the intersections of those worlds. I seek to encourage curiosity as well as make connections to curriculum. Learning is more than lecture and listening. Learning is about diving in, exploring, reflecting and connecting back to the classroom environment.

#CLMOOC POETRY PORT 29: Welcome

Welcome to the CLMOOC Poetry Port adventure! We’re working to gather and share words to make poems. Each day this month, we will be sending forth a new word, and an invitation to you to create poetry with us.

Although this leap day on the leap year — February 29, 2020 — is the end of this adventure, we still hope you have smooth sailing ahead of you and join in future CLMOOC adventures …

With that, today’s word is not farewell but, instead: WelcomePoetRY_Port_LogoYes

You can share in your usual places. We invite you to use the #clmooc or #writeout hashtag on Twitter, or the CLMOOC Facebook group, or share in the CLMOOC Flickr Group, or come into a relatively new space under development called YAP.Net, designed for draft writing and sharing in a safe space. We’ll see you there.

The icon for this month’s Poetry Port was made and graciously shared by our CLMOOC friend, Sheri.
