Welcome to the eleventh 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.

Be sure to visit the invitation to participate in the first mid-month challenge! Are you ready for a commenting challenge?

Friendly reminder, Eastern Standard Time (EST) will change to Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) beginning at 2:00 a.m. tomorrow. This means there will be one less hour to slice (23 hours instead of 24) for all slicers tomorrow only, 3/12. Of course, the time change (EDT) will remain for the rest of the challenge.

BE INSPIREDBE INSPIRED.

  • Kris Shrontz at I Survived Today, posted a poetry slice we can all relate to titled, Too Much. Kris shares her life, family, farm, and passion for writing at her blog and is always reminding us all, we can do this.
