The Big Reveal

For many of us, it's our last weekend before we launch into another school year; savor your little smidgen of summertime. 
For others, congratulations because you're already up and running!
If you're still on break, enjoy every last morsel of R & R.

And now, it's time for The Big Reveal. 

Did you pick a second-grade me off of this blogger collage that Michelle made?

Click this graphic for all of the others and to see who won.

If you thought I was number 13, you were close because she kind of looks like my sister. If you picked number 23, you're spot on! 
Everyone who played along and guessed correctly 
will be receiving a digital copy of the template for my 
Character Cards prompts. 
But wait, there's more. 
If you didn't play but you'd still like those prompts, 
just email me (or leave your email in the comments) 
and they're yours.

It's an editable document so you can add and delete to make them yours; change the fonts to cutesify them if you'd like. Print them out on an Avery 5160 address label (1" x 2 5/8") and trim them slightly to fit your standard-sized deck of playing cards. Don't feel like trimming them? 
Affix them to colorful 3x5 index cards and use them for 
morning meeting discussion starters or writing prompts.


I've thoroughly enjoyed being on the grid a lot less this month. Once I resume a regular school routine, I'll likely be blogging a bit more, though probably not daily like in the past. Thanks for checking back in the few times I've posted this month. It's been a much-needed chance to unplug and recharge my battery.


  1. YAY! More Barbara blogging!
    You are such an inspiration to all of us.
    You can tell by that second grade smile that you were ready to change the world...
