This Friday, we’ll have the Day in a Sentence folks over here for the heck of it. In Kevin’s words, more or less:

How is your week going?

Please consider sharing your words with our Day in a Sentence community — now up to almost 50 on-and-off-again contributors — by boiling down your week or a day of your week into one concise, exciting, moving sentence. Use the comment feature on this post to leave your sentence and then, on Sunday, I will compile and release them all into the e-World.

For example, were I to submit my Day in a Sentence this week, it would be as follows:

My professors, for whatever reason, couldn’t recommend a history to me, so I settled for a perennial classic: The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich.

Easy cheesy, and a rewarding source of link. Submit, readerlings.

On second thought, maybe I shouldn’t have started reading my book, yet.

Comment here.


  1. Greetings
    Here is my sentence (and link to podcast):

    In the midst of Super Tuesday, my 11 and 12 year old students let me know quite clearly that they wish they could vote for the next president of the United States and that, if they had any political power, they would move to end the war in Iraq and bring the troops — including some of their family members — back home.

  7. I’m done with winter, waiting for the sap to flow and the ground to squish under my boots; thank goodness for this brief reprieve in Berkeley where it is spring already!

  8. sara p-c

    It is highly enlightening to observe the terrifying beginnings of adolescence from this side of the furor.

  9. My first full week in the classroom as a student teacher has forced me to realize why teachers are always tired…much repect.

  10. Mary

    “Marvelous math moments meant more milestones met.” Or…using writing in math has helped my students make sense of fractions, decimals and percents at last!

  11. A colleague’s illness resulted in my teaching an extra three hours this week on top of the eighteen I already do, but I have to confess I enjoyed it!

  12. murcha

    The Mississippi Tech Network Symposium at Ole Miss was empowering but exhausting, so I welcomed the two-day Mardi Gras holiday before going back to school and tackling seniors and multigenre research papers.

  15. It’s an exciting time to decide between Barack and Hillary, I”m hoping for the collaboration for the good of the country, wouldn’t it be fantastic to believe that could happen?
