Today is Georgia O'Keeffe's birthday. So much we can learn from her. To See Takes Time (M.A. Reilly, 2009) “Nobody sees a flower - really - it is so small it takes time - we haven't time - and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.” …
Birds in Flight (M.A. Reilly, 2014, Wales) Mortal Limit - Robert Penn Warren I saw the hawk ride updraft in the sunset over Wyoming. It rose from coniferous darkness, past gray jags Of mercilessness, past whiteness, into the gloaming Of dream-spectral light above the lazy purity of snow-snags. There-- west--were …
Voyeur (M.A. Reilly, 2010) I. This past week found me at a northern Bronx elementary school one day, another at a high school in the South Bronx, and at two different schools in Newark on two other days. A busy week spent in the company of teachers and administrators. At …
from The Changing Countryside. from Yellow Umbrella Two of my favorite wordless book are Dong Sheen and Jae-Soo Liu's (2002) Yellow Umbrella and Jorg Muller's (2006) The Changing Countryside. In this post I want to highlight a recent (and one to be published) wordless picture books. Macguire's The Wild Swans, …
Talking Bird Talk Nov. 2, 2014
Raven Talk (M.A. Reilly, 2010) I. Mr. and Mrs. Rivet were the first ones. They lived up the block and were childless at a time when most other families in our neighborhood had more children spilling out of their homes than inside space might permit. They were old, too--Mrs. Rivet's …
from Sam and Dave Dig a Hole. Barnett, Marc. (2014). Sam and Dave Dig a Hole. Illustrated by Jon Klassen. Somerville, MA: Candlewick Press. from Rosie Revere, Engineer. Beaty, Andrea. (2013).

A child reading with a flashlight. (Reilly, Newark, NJ) I. Seeing So I have been thinking more about potential engagements with the Neil Gaiman and Lorenzo Mattotti's text, Hansel and Gretel that I initially began thinking about here. I wondered how students might see the text if I was to …
I. Thinking on Your Feet Here's the thing I don't quite grasp--why is guided reading so hotly debated and often debated by people who don't seem to actually teach? Now I admit that I get some of the problems folks have with 'guided reading' as there seems to be a …
Samhain Oct. 31, 2014
I made this image early one morning on my way to work in Morristown, NJ--a few days before Samhain in 2010. The sun has set. Let the festival begin. Samhain's Fire (M.A Reilly, 2010)
I. An EL Lesson Last week I was observing an Expeditionary Learning lesson being taught to third graders and what I saw gave me pause. I suspect it might have you pausing too. There's a fair amount of rhetoric being voiced and revoiced by some state and district administrators, ed …
A Little Black Oct. 28, 2014
A Little Black - Brendan Constantine The children of Juarez have run out of red crayons. There’s so much blood in their eyes; the bodies of mules dumped in their schools, hands & heads by the road, blood in pools, blood in stories of blood. Before I know it, I’m …
Looking (M.A. Reilly, 2009) from 11.3.14 The New Yorker How I Didn’t Get Myself to a Nunnery BY SUZANNE LUMMIS That girl they found ensconced in mud and loam,she wasn’t me. Small wonder, though, they jumped.To a conclusion. Water puffs you up,and we pale Slavic girls looked much alike—back then. …
Sisyphus (M.A. Reilly, 2012) I. What I most need to know is that journeys cross divides. II. The young man is of an age where the shift from paper to networks as a means to gather, organize, analyze, and communicate information was more known than not; less truth than surprise. …
Pleasures that Are Final Oct. 24, 2014
Gliding (M.A. Reilly, Ringwood NJ) "Are there not some pursuits that we practice because they are good in themselves, and some pleasures that are final? And is this not among them? I have sometimes dreamt, at least, that when the Day of Judgment dawns and the great conquerors and lawyers …
A Chance of Crows (Reilly, 2011) I. Life in the Silo In the United States, we test each child ages 8 and higher as if he or she lived in a silo. And we say that the results of these siloed experiments will let us know if the child is …
Losing Your Way Oct. 20, 2014
Calvary (M.A. Reilly, South Dakota, 2010) I. Pat, Tina, Robert and I spent part of a summer on the road, leaving Brooklyn and New Jersey well behind and making our way up the Maine coast and back to Boston. We had no real destination in mind. I can't recall whose …
The Bath (M.A. Reilly, 2013) The point is that a rhizome or multiplicity never allows itself to be overcoded, never has available a supplementary dimension over and above its number of lines, that is, over and above the multiplicity of numbers attached to those lines. (Deleuze & Guatarri, 1987, p. …
Parataxis Oct. 18, 2014
Web (M.A. Reilly, 2012) I. There's this gorgeous moment in a Loren Eiseley essay when the writer touches a pencil to a strand of the web--forcing an intrusion into spider universe. He writes: ...Immediately there was a response. The web, plucked by its menacing occupant, began to vibrate until it …
