CLASSROOM SLICE OF LIFE STORY CHALLENGE: DAY 13 OF 31
Welcome to Day 13!
One of the favorite Slice of Life topics which my sixth graders love to write about is cooking with family members. Have you baked cookies, made scrambled eggs, cooked up some grits with someone in your family recently? If so, it would make a great Slice of Life.
Here is the chef Jamie Oliver making pancakes with his kids. We love all the descriptive words he uses to talk about cooking and tasting, not to mention the sounds and sights of a kitchen in use – all the inspiration you need to craft a great slice of life:
WRITE a slice of life story on your own blog.

I teach Writing Workshop, Language Arts and Social Studies to sixth graders at a middle school in suburban New Jersey. This blog is my attempt to capture all the "stuff" that goes into my teaching life - the planning, the dreaming, the reading, the preparing, the hoping and (above all) the kids.
