It’s Five Minute Friday time! Remember you too can join in this “writing flash mob” and/or do it with your students. It’s a simple and quick free writing exercise. Read my post introducing Five Minute Friday for details on how to participate. Also, check out how to incorporate Five Minute Friday with creating interactive posters for the “Writing Process”.
Set aside five minutes of free writing time to join me on writing about “Home”, today’s topic. Remember I’m applying my Five Minute Friday posts toward education and work, but you can write about anything about “Home” that sparks your interest.
The door to my home pounds open with the the crisp cold air of winter startling my senses. “Mama…mama….mama…,” my son calls, looking and searching for me. “Mama, mama…” he calls running through the house. With no apparent worry of the tight-bundled mass he is in, coat, hat and all, he proceeds yelling, “My mama, my mama”. He peers around the corner all waddled in his winter apparel , “Ahh, MY MOMMA!” He claps his hands and screams in excitement, “Yeah, MY MOMMA”! At this moment, nothing matters more to my child and I than this moment, this daily ritual of steadfast love that says, “Work is done…now…now…that MAMMA… I’m home!”
