On the final day of the March SOLSC, Amy Rudd crafted a parody of Barry Manilow’s “I Write the Songs.” (Click here if you are unfamiliar with the song.) She changed it to “I Wrote the Slices.” I’ll be honest. I’ve been a Manilow fan ever since I found his records in my parents’ house. I’ve even seen him in concert! Therefore, I LOVED Amy’s homage to Manilow on the final day of the month-long challenge. Therefore, on this final day of April, I wanted to share Amy’s piece with you.
My blog’s a place, it’s from my soul
And when I read the comments you’ve left here for me
I’m happy and I feel like they are gold…
Finally, I won’t be slicing this week since it’s Screen Free Week. While I cannot go completely screen-free this week, I’ve elected to cut back on anything non-essential for consulting. Therefore, I’m only going to be checking e-mail three times daily and won’t be blogging this week. (All of my posts were pre-set to go live in advance of Screen Free Week.) So, I’ll see everyone next week.
I am a literacy consultant who has spent the past dozen years working with teachers to improve the teaching of writing in their classrooms. While I work with teachers and students in grades K-6, I'm a former fourth and fifth-grade teacher so I have a passion for working with upper elementary students.
I'm the author of Craft Moves (Stenhouse Publishers, 2016) and the co-author of Jump Into Writing (Zaner-Bloser, 2021), Welcome to Writing Workshop (Stenhouse Publishers, 2019), and Day By Day (Stenhouse, 2010).
