Day 8 of the March SOLSC! #SOL15

Write, Share, Give
Write, Share, Give


Eastern Daylight Time begins today.  Remember to link your posts by 11:59 p.m. EDT. (Everyone will still have the same 24-hour window to post, regardless of the time zone in which they live.)

Our Weekend Commenting Challenge continues today.  ICYMI: Check out Dana’s post about the commenting challenge. I hope you’ll participate!


BE INSPIRED.Tom Riddoch blogs at Nothing2read: Try Writing Something. He recently wrote a slice of life story, “Alien Robots, Giant Perch, and the Cold,” that was a great small moment piece about night noises.  If you’re struggling to keep your slices about small parts of the day, then read Tom’s post for some inspiration.



“I will write until not a single word remains in my soul… until every story in my heart is told… until my mind’s well of ideas is bone dry… and even then I will write on because writing is not just something I do but part of who I am.” –Kathy R. Jeffords

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).

  1. So, I’ve been writing my slices late at night, and forgetting to add my slices here. I don’t know how long I’ve been doing this, hopefully not long. They’re all on my blog!!! Feel free to check them out.

    Here’s todays… from yesterday… because I fell asleep at 9pm last night. I was anticipating the problem of losing an hour of sleep, I think.

    I will get this!!


  2. My Best friends wedding
    I met nancy 7 years ago when we started teaching together.  We instantly became friends. We were friend sole mates.  Through those 7 years our friendship grew and we became best friends. We’ve been through a lot together. We’ve spent hours together. Been the keeper of each other’s secrets. Been the sounding board for thoughts, […] My best friend is getting married 🙂
