A Peek at My Week {6-29-14}

Welcome to this week's edition of A Peek at My Week, the linky party where we can all share our plans for the upcoming week.  I am glad you are here and I hope you will participate by linking up below.
I just finished up a whirlwind week with my sister and her family who were visiting from Dallas.  It was so great to see them!  My niece and nephew are growing like weeds.  (I'm sure my kids seemed like that to her!)  Here are some pictures I captured:

This week, I only have a few things planned.  I am finishing up my UWM-Writing Project Advanced Institute research project.  Last week, I wrote that I would be researching a persuasive piece about why it's important to teach writing.  However, after doing some research, I became interested in the topic of how to help struggling writers and am now pursuing that.

Speaking of struggling writers, have you seen this website from Jim Write at Intervention Central?  There are lots of great writing interventions and ideas he shares for free!

I'm looking forward to this week because I don't have a lot of other things scheduled.  Life has been so crazy since I got out of school.  I'm looking forward to just having some time to sit and relax too!


  1. I'm glad to hear you had a good visit with your sister and her family. I really like your research project topic. Thank you for the helpful website! Enjoy your week!
