Welcome to Day 10 of the 4th Annual Classroom Slice of Life Story Challenge!

If your students are writing for the Classroom Slice of Life Story Challenge, this is where you will post the link to their writing.

I’ve decided it’s “Throwback Thursday” today here on the Classroom SOLSC page, and so I went searching for inspiration in past year’s classroom challenges. I found 31 Slices (ideas for topics) in last year’s Day 10 post, hosted by Anna. It’s a great visual if you have students who are starting to feel stuck for ideas.  Another great resource for idea inspiration is the Pinterest page collected by Stacey Shubitz, our Chief of Operations and Lead Writer here at Two Writing Teachers. Peruse the pins and pull out the school-appropriate ones that might inspire your class to try a different type of writing!

Check out the padlet of mentor student blog posts and add one (or more) of your students’ posts, too! We are creating a resource of mentor slices that can be shared with our classes.



  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.
  5. Any questions, please contact one of us.
