I love when I can have a piece of writing serve more than one purpose.
This past month I have been spending much of my writing energy -- at least the writing energy that isn't dedicated to noveling -- on poetry. After all, it IS national poetry month. Most of my poetry writing has been inspired by the daily prompts over at Ethical ELA. Today's prompt (using the idea of "secret connoisseurs") not only captures a slice of one of my favorite classroom habits, but also just one of my favorite things in general: stickers.
