Thanks for taking a few minutes to read my blog. This started mainly because I was bored during back-to-back snow days and a long weekend, and a friend told me I needed to watch a new show on TV. While I know that my writing is far from spectacular, and I don’t really expect to write on this regularly, I thought it was worth a try. The fact that one of my third graders has already started his own blog was part of my motivation.
If you are wondering about the title, it is borrowed from a piece that I wrote for my graduate work titled Purple Crayons, Wild Things and Dots: Getting Lost in Children’s Literature and Curriculum. I figure that most of my posts will be somehow connected to teaching and coaching children, and that chapter, which I wrote a few years ago, explains my philosophy on education and childhood.
