Some Slicers write about their home lives exclusively, while others write about their teaching. Slicers like Tara Smith (@tara_smith5) write about both so beautifully. Last week Tara wrote “A Slice of Our Read Aloud Day” about her sixth graders settling-in for read aloud. It’s the kind of moment that happens in classrooms every day. However, the way Tara describes read aloud elevates it to a higher place. Check out her slice and then try your hand at making more of a small part of your school day.
