Welcome to Day 14 of the 4th Annual Classroom Slice of Life Story Challenge!


It’s time again to #CelebrateMonday and trend the positive. We are doing important work by motivating and encouraging our students to find their writing voice through daily blogging. If you share your student writing on Twitter, consider using the hashtag #CelebrateMonday to share this work with a broader community of educators.

Have you added to the mentor blog post padlet? Consider adding a post that you think might help other student writers!

Today is Pi Day! (3.14) Check out this idea from Scholastic for writing pi-ku poetry with your class (like haiku, but different syllable combinations). Maybe some student bloggers might try pi-ku today!


  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.
