My first Slice of Life. Writing is hard. http://www.literacyonthemind.com/2015/07/slice-of-life-writing-is-hard.html
I’m definitely way late but better late than not at all.
I’m super late slicing tonight! But I have a really good reason!
Out of words–Item Review: https://meanderingmaya.wordpress.com/2015/07/21/item-review/
Just making it in under the wire. I didn’t have a story or a poem calling to me today. Thanks to Mandy Robek I decided I needed to push myself to find something to write about. I wonder how many stories we let slip away because we don’t take the time to try to find them?
Cucumbers Anyone? http://merelydaybyday.blogspot.com/2015/07/slice-of-life-cucumbers-anyone.html
My Slice: An Evening Walk http://wp.me/p6sSVO-1W in which my drive to complete my 10,000 daily steps makes me reflect on my childhood home.
Late today! Spent the day planning for co-teaching with a colleague…we head back to school one week from today! So I am “cheating” a little and linking a poem I wrote for TeachersWrite.
My new blog for my new son! Matched my blog for my other son.
late writing & posting today–but here are my thoughts on training my library student helpers http://thesassybibliophile.blogspot.com/2015/07/library-page-boot-camp.html
I realize I’m horribly late to the slicing, and I apologize.

Digital Story on the perfect birthday weekend! http://www.raisingreadersandwriters.com/2015/07/it-doesnt-take-much-slice-of-life-story.html
I can’t seem to leave a comment on your blog, either! Happy Birthday! I love the Smilebox video and the cake looks delicious!
Today was portfolio day in our Intensive Summer Institute and here’s a piece I wrote for my daughters:
better late than never…
Our first camping trip as a family…
Ok, why can’t I leave comments today? I tried 4 times on Linda Baie’s blog, and 3 other people’s blogs (jarhartz, Kathleen, and SallyDonnelly11) and the screen just goes back to the original posts, like I didn’t do anything at all. No “awaiting moderation” or anything. Hmm…
Thanks for trying Jennifer. I’m not blocking anyone on my blog, have only word verification on. Are you logged in somewhere, like on FB?
This is my first Slice of Life for TWT. Thank you for welcoming me to the community.
Darkness fades; light saunters in.
Welcome to our online writing community! I’m glad you joined us today.
I tried to leave a comment in three different ways (logging in with Twitter, Facebook, and Google Plus) on your blog, but each login attempt failed. Thought I’d let you know since others might have a similar problem when they try to leave you a comment.
Each word in your poem was stunningly selected. You perfectly captured nature’s “good morning.”
A reading conversation at home teaches me something new about book jackets.
Finding my way to my OLW:
This post kind of meanders:)
writing to a prompt – always a good choice when my brain is slow
Horseshoe crabs are survivors…I just got a “cancer free” result from my recent PET scan and have now joined the ranks of cancer survivors. Read about them…they are fascinating!
Lifelong learning! http://wp.me/p3eVyl-by
Late this week, but remembering to laugh!
My son just had a birthday and a couple of friends have birthdays coming up this week, so I have birthdays on the brain. http://iheartpurplestuff.blogspot.com/2015/07/birthdays-light-my-fire.html
Hi! I’m new here… I’m Joe and I teach eighth grade English in San Diego, California. Working on my own writing skills, I love being able to talk about ways to improve and grow. Thanks for reading this week!
Dad and an exceptional mechanic save the day! http://sherlockesque.blogspot.com/2015/07/heroic-dads-and-mechanics.html
No words but lists
Hi TWT! http://wp.me/p6fpbi-fr My post is about writing diverse characters in fiction and I’m my writing is increasingly affected by ideas from Culturally Responsive Teaching and the Brain. I love to hear what you think!

Your link didn’t work, ReadWriteThruLife.
“Remembering Dea Dea with Stories” http://evolvingenglishteacher.blogspot.com/2015/07/remembering-dea-dea-with-stories-slice.html
A good colleague and friend died last week. Here I share some anecdotes about her.
I regret having missed posting last week. This week’s slice, Positivity Undone and Renewed, is Part I of my #ILA2015 trip to St. Louis. http://beyondliteracylink.blogspot.com/2015/07/positivity-undone-and-renewed.html.
Put On Your Selling Shoes!
Any secret readers in your life?
Embarrassed by a three year old…
Today’s slice of life comes from an experience I had at the ILA Conference with some good friends.
Continuing my learning journey in the summer of twenty fifteen:
It’s nice to be a great cook, but balance is better.
The I have come the realization, I am not a cook! http://bit.ly/1OjWFTD
It is always nice spending an afternoon with family and friends.
When people think about you, what do they say? What identifies you? Is that what you would choose?
Raising teenagers is NOT easy. You always have to stay one step ahead:
A memory of my mother, a pondering about how the mind works.
Tongue firmly in cheek Ego Tripping
How Did This Happen?
Always great to have family or friends come for a visit! A peek into last week . . .
Pondering and applying wisdom from Mr. Rogers
It’s been a poetry kind of summer
The 3rd Sunday in July brings on the Oregon Basset Hound Games.
Summer weather has arrived.
A space just for writing: http://morebooksthantime.blogspot.com/2015/07/tuesday-slice-writing-barn.html
The older I get, the more I forget! My slice is an answer to remembering the books I read.
My 5 day trip to KS morphs into a 2 week KS/OK trip.
Enjoying the small moments in my days…http://1gratefulteacher.blogspot.com/2015/07/small-moments.html
Are you travelling this summer? I am enjoying my journeys!
Do clothes make the woman? Some thoughts and a story.
I’ve been spending some time on Google+ with #cyberPD folks. Lots to think about. Here’s a slice of my thoughts.
It’s hard seeing my friend change. Here’s a SOL that happen last May:
We have survived! The move is complete and we’re settling in. Thanks for all your prayers and comments over the past couple of months.
Are you afraid of the dark?
I tackle the art of baking macarons, those finicky French delicacies, and learn a few lessons.
Naturally a book made me think of my dog.
I laughed, laughed, and laughed while reading your blog. It was well-written in a way that allowed me to visibly see the moments unfolding as you described them.
At this point, I have a bite on my ankle from last week. Mosquitos have been awful in DFW metroplex. Yes, they can stop time and stop a conversation mid-sentence while the swatting occurs for minutes.
News ticker: Can a Mosquito Stop Time?
Kayaking with my husband teaches me the art of healing. http://rwtlive.blogspot.com/2015/07/a-confluence.html
Inspired by teacher and poet Linda Opyr, my poem about teaching- You Must Tell Them This
I can relate to you wholeheartedly, Tricia!
I spent the first month month out of teaching summer school, and I enjoyed it immensely. July is now catch up month – I started penning content for a book, designing my website, sending out proposals for upcoming conferences, following through on lunch commitments with friends, and preparing a trip to Arkansas to visit family and more friends.
Like yourself, I am feel overwhelm at the mere fact of trying to get everything done before returning to work within the next couple of weeks.
For certain, you have been shining your light as an educator. You have been a part of numerous educational programs, workshops, and conferences. While you feel overwhelm, your great work will reap GREAT rewards for your students!

Phoebes are on my mind. http://mainelywrite.blogspot.com/2015/07/did-you-say-feed-me.html
I can’t seem to leave a comment on your blog! It’s weird. I’ve tried several times. Thanks for sharing!
I started writing about shopping last week, and found some memories too. http://www.teacherdance.org/2015/07/memories-when-unexpected.html
I cannot seem to leave a comment on your blog! It’s weird; I tried several times! Thank you for sharing!
