My friend Margaret from Reflections on the Teche runs #DigiLit Sunday. Lately she’s been using one word prompts. Today is SAFE.
The first thing I thought of was the position of umpire. This makes me think about how we need to help kids take risks like running home in a baseball game or trying out a new poetic form. Wouldn’t it be great if we took up the umpire position by calling out “Safe!” Whenever we wanted to create a safe zone for trying out new craft moves or ideas.
