The Slice of Life Story Challenge began on Two Writing Teachers in March 2008. This March, we’ll host the 11th Annual Slice of Life Story Challenge. Ever since the challenge began, the mission has remained the same: to support teachers who want to write daily. Teachers who write regularly can better support the students they teach in writing workshops daily.
In the weeks to come, the co-author team and I will provide you with information about prizes and the Sixth Annual Classroom Slice of Life Story Challenge. For now, here’s some basic information to get you energized for our March writing challenge. (Please note: There are three sections to the slide presentation below: new & returning slicers, new slicers, and returning slicers. Please read the sections that apply to you.

I am a literacy consultant who has spent the past dozen years working with teachers to improve the teaching of writing in their classrooms. While I work with teachers and students in grades K-6, I'm a former fourth and fifth-grade teacher so I have a passion for working with upper elementary students.
I'm the author of Craft Moves (Stenhouse Publishers, 2016) and the co-author of Jump Into Writing (Zaner-Bloser, 2021), Welcome to Writing Workshop (Stenhouse Publishers, 2019), and Day By Day (Stenhouse, 2010).
