SOLSC Classroom Challenge

Classroom SOLSC for Students: Day 9 of 31

Hello and welcome back to the Classroom Slice of Life Challenge!

Have you thought about partnering up with another SOLSC classroom yet? Top three reasons why partnering up is a great way to go:

  1. It’s a great way to connect with and learn about the lives of kids who live in places far away.
  2. You might find it makes teaching the logistics of commenting a bit easier if all your students are reading the slices from the same classroom blog.
  3. You may find that your own students get more comments, more consistently, when you are partnered with another classroom.

An easy way to get started is to scroll through the links posted below and choose a classroom that seems like a good fit for your class. Perhaps you’d like to partner up with a classroom that is a similar age, or maybe you’re looking for a classroom from a different part of the world, or maybe it would be interesting to partner with a classroom that just happens to live not-so-far away. You should be able to contact the classroom teacher through the class website, either through an email address or by simply leaving a comment on their blog.

Good luck and have fun!

If you haven’t already, grab this nifty badge for your personal blog, to celebrate that you are writing along with your students:



Daylight Savings Time Head’s Up

On Sunday, March 12, at 2:00am, the time in the United States will jump ahead one hour, meaning that there is one less hour for slicing on Sunday. As always, comments will close at midnight, EST. Remember that no matter where in the world you are slicing from, we all have the same window for blogging- it just starts and ends at different times depending on your time zone.


  1. If you haven’t yet read the Essential Information post, then please click here to read it now before you continue posting 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. Remember that when you comment on most blogs for the first time (including Two Writing Teachers), the first comment may need to be moderated by the blog owner before it appears. You should be using the  same username/email throughout the challenge – this will help your  comments should appear instantly in the future.
  5. Any questions, please contact one of us.
    • If your last name begins with the letters A – F, please email questions to Deb, DebFrazier4 {at} gmail {dot} com
    • If your last name begins with the letters G – L, please email questions to Beth, beth [at] elizabethmoore [dot] work
    • If your last name begins with the letters M- R please email questions to Kathleen, Mrs.Sokolowski {at} gmail {dot} com
    • If your last name begins with the letters S – Z, please email questions to Lanny, Lanny.Ball {at} gmail {dot} com

Finally, we invite you to grab the Classroom SOLSC button if you haven’t already, and use it on your blog. (Spanish version coming soon!)
