Whatever Wednesday — a chance to post something I’ve seen that I’m diggin’. Though often a cool quote or poster, it might simply be a picture.
Enjoy!… and consider posting your own Whatever.
I’m currently reading aloud A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park. It’s a Battle book…
and it fit right in with world awareness for World Read Aloud Day… and I couldn’t read it and not share it… and the kids are hooked. While dealing largely with the plight of the Lost Boys of Sudan, it is also a book about the water crisis in Africa. It’s scaryeyeopeningbreathtakinghorizonexpanding. (Check out the blog page I set up.)
And then I see that my friend and his organization, Ugandan Water Project–an organization that helps provide clean, safe drinking water to African villlages–is doing a fundraiser run.
And I hate running, but I kind of want to do it.

Does anyone want to join me? Sponsor me? It would be SO cool to have some students sign up and run along with their slow, “old” teacher in Rochester to raise money and awareness for this cause.
Here is a picture of my buddy James from the site and a couple cool videos so you can see part of what they’re all about. And hey–Let me know.
