Slice of Life Story Challenge

Day 9 of the March SOLSC #SOL17

Welcome to the ninth day of the 10th Annual Slice of Life Story Challenge! 

If you’re sharing your students’ slice of life stories, please head over to the Classroom Challenge.


It’s KID COMMENTING DAY! We encourage you to hop over and visit the Classroom Challenge and give some clicks to students who are working so hard each day to participate. Show them some comment love!


  • Lauren Petri writes at Taxonomy of a Teacher. This month, on Day 3,  she wrote a slice full of gratitude for her mother. Who are you grateful for? Often times the people in our lives become a centerpiece of a slice here and there as they have such an impact on our every day moments.
  • Click here if you need topic ideas.





Please use the SAME email/username information on all of your March comments.


Prizes will be given away at the conclusion of the month-long Slice of Life Story Challenge.  You’ll be eligible for a prize if:

1.     You fill out the participant data form, which went live on February 19th.

2.     You comment ONLY ONCE on the daily call for Slice of Life stories (3/1 – 3/31/17).

3.     You sign a Slice of Life Story Challenge Participation Pledge on April 1st.  (We’ll post the pledge and will ask you to “sign.” You’ll sign by leaving a comment certifying you wrote and linked daily, as well as commented on at least three other Slicers’ writing daily.)

  • In order to be in the running for a prize at the end of the month, you must leave the link to your slice of life story by 11:59 p.m. EST to be eligible for prizes.
    • Only links left before 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time will count when you’re signing-off on the participation pledge on April 1st.
  • The call for slices goes up at midnight EST. Everyone has the same 24-hour window to post, regardless of the time zone in which they live.
  • Please play fair and leave only one link each day.

    1. I tried to post directly on your blog and kept getting an error message. Just wanted to say I couldn’t agree with you more. It is really frustrating. Yes, I seize the opportunity to get to the beach when I can, but I’m also spending many hours on grad classes, professional development, and planning. I love the part about making half the salary of others and not having to worry about plans when your sick. I can’t even imagine what that would be like. 🙂 Like you said though, wouldn’t trade it for any other career in the world.

    1. Hello Kimberlee, It looks like you mistakenly commented here on the Two Writing Teachers adult challenge page. All Classroom Challenge posts go on the Classroom Challenge page (also, I think you forgot the link!)
