Welcome to the Tuesday Slice of Life Story Challenge!
Have you wanted to be a more responsive writing teacher, but weren’t sure how to go about doing it? Melanie Meehan and Kelsey Sorum’s new book provides a framework to help you hone a more child-centered apporach to the teaching of writing.
It’s Week 4 of the Classroom SOLSC! What reflections do you have on the experience so far? How are you planning ahead for a celebration?
The Cognitive Content Dictionary (CCD) was first introduced to me in my tier 1 Project Guided Language Acquisition Design training. It is both linguistically and culturally responsive and, above all, brings joy into the classroom.
In this writing community, Tuesdays mean writing a slice of life, sharing it, and appreciating the writing of others through comments.
Journalism inspires students to write personally without as much vulnerability as personal narratives sometimes require. However, I still learned SO much about what these students cared about and who they are as people!
We are beginning Week 3 of the Classroom SOLSC! How are your student bloggers doing? This week, we will focus on how essential thoughtful comments are for bloggers. Please share your ideas on how you teach your writers to comment in meaningful ways in the comments of this post.
While cultivating a daily writing habit and being part of a writing community are the real reward of the SOLSC, there are prizes. Find out if you won one by scrolling through this announcement.
To end the year on a happy note, I am setting some goals for April, May and June in my own version of a Writing Teacher’s Happiness Project. What would you work on to end your year in a happy way?
Many slicers spent the month of March finding inspiration, writing, sharing, and commenting every day. Throughout the year, we welcome you back together on Tuesdays!
Grammar is a set of craft moves, not a set of rules.
