Slice of Life Story Challenge

Day 12 of the March SOLSC #SOL17

Welcome to the twelfth 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.


Did you see the invitation to participate in the commenting challenge? Be sure to check it out and if you would like, read and comment on 60 or more SOLSC posts! Remember to fill out the Google Form located here by 11:59 EDT this evening to be in the running for the prize should you meet the goal. Happy reading and happy slicing.

In case you missed it, Eastern Standard Time (EST) changed to Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) at 2:00 a.m. this morning. This means there will be one less hour to slice (23 hours instead of 24) for all slicers today. Though the time change will continue for the remainder of the challenge, we will be back to having 24 hours again tomorrow.


  • Chris at Reading Amid the Chaos wrote a post titled Love. I always love seeing the different formats people use for their slices. This one might be one you could try this month. She began her post with Love is, going on to list the many moments of love she noticed throughout her day.

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 EDT. 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.
