Slice of Life Story Challenge

Day 21 of the March SOLSC #SOL17

It’s day 21. Welcome!

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


  • 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.
  • If you are logged in with your profile when you comment on other slices, it makes it easier for slicers to find and visit your blog.


  • Katie Kraushaar, one of our new slicers this year, wrote this slice  about visiting her favorite Chinese restaurant. In it she focuses on one person and includes so many details about Nick. Writing the details about one person can be so rewarding.

    1. I couldn’t find where to leave my comment on your page, bbutler — but I wanted to tell you how much I loved reading your slice on YELLOW. You are absolutely right we all have memories of one song or another that when we hear it, we’re somehow exactly back in that moment. You unpacked your tale masterfully and I enjoyed being in the car and at the party, etc. I remember you from year’s past — we both like to weave in song lyrics. 🙂 Nice to reconnect. Write on… b
