Not Quite the Start I Hoped For… But Not Bad

Eight of my 18 kids (two were absent) came into school today with their Slice of Life Story Entries from the weekend. I was hoping to have more like 90% of my students come in with their entries written today, but I guess you cannot get everything you wish for, right?

However, let’s focus on the positives:

  • Nearly half of my students who were in attendance today had entries to show me.
  • Two kids started a brand new notebook just for their Slice of Life Stories.
  • When I showed my students the blog that one of my former students started for the SOLSC, they got excited since they saw another kid, just a touch older than them, was blogging about her slices of life.
  • One of my three students who inspired this Challenge saw Barack Obama at RIC on Saturday and wrote about attending the rally for his Saturday Slice of Life Story in his writer’s notebook. Election 2008: Who knew it would creep into my students’ Slices of Life?
  • I’m hoping for greater participation tomorrow. I have more than enough mini bee stickers to put on that chart!
