Here is today’s quote from “I Will Always Write Back.”
After two hours of pushing my mother in a wheelbarrow through mud, I was relieved to finally see the hospital in the distance. We neared the entrance and I saw that there was a line of at least fifty people waiting to be seen. We joined the end and I ran ahead to see if there was any chance of bumping my mother to the front. As I walked toward the admitting door, I passed many people who looked worse off than my mother. One woman was limp, almost lifeless, in her husband’s arms.

Here is today’s quote from “I Will Always Write Back.”
“What does your father do?” he asked.
I think he expected me to say “teacher,” so when I said that my father lost his factory job after sixteen years of dedicated work, Mr. M was even more surprised. I explained that my parents didn’t finish elementary school, and they were barely literate. And I added what I knew was the urgent truth: that I was their only hope. As I spoke, I felt a big ball of emotion forming in my chest.

Do you see some students during the day using iPads and other devices to help with their communication? Have you wondered how, or why? Communication is much more than just the words you speak. Using different modes of communication helps to improve our conversations and understand each other. We will be continuing our exploration of augmented, or assisted, communication with a new core vocabulary word of the week. Core words are most of the words we say in our daily conversations.  

Our word of the week this week is “what”. Some ways you can use this word include “WHAT are you talking about?” “WHAT! No way!” “WHAT was that?” And “I like WHAT you did there.” what are more ways you can use the word “what”? Get creative!

Students: you’ve learned the what, the how, and the why of Calm Classroom. Today you will begin putting it to practice. Enjoy.”

For the next few weeks we will be reading quotes that highlight the very different life of Martin in Zimbabwe.

Here is today’s quote from “I Will Always Write Back.”

p.242 I waited for Rabbit to start eating, to watch how to hold a fork. Mine felt clumsy in my hand. Rabbit must have sensed my discomfort, because he said, “You can eat with your hands. No one will judge you.” I looked around and saw every single kid was using a fork. I tightened my grip and dug into the steaming pile of beans on my plate.

p.215 Martin was leaning against a building that looked like a wooden shack-not the thatched-roof hut in my mind. My first thought was, that can’t be his home. Our backyard tool shed looked bigger and sturdier. I flipped through the pictures several times, though, and realized, that is his home.

p.182 Martin wrote, “My mother wants to thank you for the shoes. Now she will be counted in society.” I thought, How can someone be overlooked or ignored just because she doesn’t have shoes?

“I started to look at my own life in a new way. I saw all the things I took for granted-which cereal to eat for breakfast, or whether or not I wanted ice cream or cookies for dessert. These decisions were total luxuries. I got to choose. Even going to school felt different-not so much this thing I had to do, something I was lucky to do.”
