I can't believe we are already on the 24th day of the 31 day writing challenge. My gratitude to the team at Two Writing Teachers for hosting.
A few weeks ago my class asked me for a large plastic envelope type tool to hold math tools. So after school I headed to the nearest office supply store and browsed the aisles for just the plastic pocket. First I went to the aisle where I expected to find the type of tool my kids were requesting. I quickly found a plastic envelop and then decided to browse the other aisles.
For the first time it really was a quick browse. Everything I saw that I would have once tossed in my cart didn't seem to appealing. I kept thinking, I use Evernote for that or I can do that on my iPad. Don't get me wrong I still find myself reaching for a pen and paper every once in a while and probably always will, but there's something about having everything all in one place and usually only an arms reach away, no matter where I am.
Today I sat with a school supply catalog searching the catalog for classroom supplies for next year. again, I found myself moving quickly and not even tempted to linger. Maybe technology has crept into my life in more ways than I realized, but my iPad will never capture the heavenly smell of a office supply store!
