Welcome to Day 9 of the 4th Annual Classroom Slice of Life Story Challenge!


We are so glad you are back to post your student writing today! It is “Wonder”ful Wednesday and an awesome chance to let a wonder spark some writing for your students. Margaret Simon shared her student’s writing on the padlet created for us to share student mentor blog posts. Margaret’s student used Wonderopolis to discover facts about a topic of interest, Japanese cherry trees.  Please add to the padlet any blog posts from your class that you think could spark other writers!

How has the Classroom SOLSC been influencing your students and classroom communities? I’ve noticed more reluctant writers are writing far more often than I ever would have imagined, blogging before school, after school and on the weekends! I’m learning more about my students’ lives through their daily writing, finding that some quiet students who are reluctant to share out loud will share more about their lives in writing. I’m building stronger relationships as I get to know more about my students’ interests and passions. What are you noticing about your student writers as they participate in the challenge?


  1. If you haven’t read the Essential Information post, then please click here to read it now before you post the link to your students’ slice of life stories. Don’t forget to keep your students’ identities anonymous for their protection.
  2.  If your students are slicing from their personal blogs, then you should link their blog posts together using your classroom or personal blog. Then, share the permalink to the location of the “round up” of student slices. (Click here for more information on how to do this.) Individual students CANNOT link here directly. Students who are under 18 must have an adult linking for them. Any student links left without an adult link will be deleted.
  3. Only post the link to your students’ slices of life here. Do not post the link to your personal slice of life stories here. Go to the daily call for individual slice of life stories to post your personal slice.
  4. If this is the first comment you’ve left on Two Writing Teachers, then we will have to moderate your comment. We will be checking throughout the day in order to get your links up for the community as soon as possible. As long as you use the same username/email to log in going forward, your comments should appear instantly in the future.
