Classroom SOLSC for Students: Day 7 of 31

Welcome back for Day 7 of the Classroom Slice of Life Story Challenge! We are so glad you are with us this month.

Are you looking for idea-generating strategies and tips for your writers?

Here are a a few quick tips for young slicers:

  1. Keep a list of memories, topics, and ideas going all the time. Keep adding to the list every day. Then you’ll have more to choose from when you sit down to write.
  2. Get ideas from other kids. Read other students’ slices thinking, “What does this remind me of? Do I have a story like this?” Writers get ideas from each other all the time.
  3. Try starting with an image in your blog post, then write to go with it. Sometimes choosing an image that you connect with is a great way to begin. You might write, “I chose this image because…” or “This image reminds me of…”

 

Details:

  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 hub 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.
  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.
