Day 19 of the March SOLSC #SOL17

Today is our 19th day of the SOLSC. We are glad you’re here.

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

ANNOUNCEMENTS

  • Please see Melanie’s post from yesterday  about this weekend’s commenting challenge and an amazing prize. If you comment on 60 posts you’ll be eligible to win a chance to attend a Highlights Foundation workshop.
  • As you are enjoying the comments left on your posts, please try to visit the blogs and comment on the posts of slicers who comment on your slices. 

BE INSPIRED

  • Former TWT co-author Tara Smith wrote a slice entitled Choose Kind. I love both the message and the craft move of repeating and building on a sentence. Perhaps you will consider your own “Choose Kind” post today, or try to repeat and build onto your central message throughout your slice.
