Welcome to our weekly writing challenge! I’m delighted you’re here to link up your slice of life story!
The 11th Annual Slice of Life Story Challenge and the 6th Annual Classroom Slice of Life Story Challenge begin in less than a month. If you’re planning to participate, watch this space weekly this month for special announcements and links to relevant blog posts about the March challenges.
- Many potential new Slicers dip their toe into the water on Tuesdays in February.
- If you’re a first-time Slicer, please make note of that when you leave the permalink to your blog post.
- If you’re a longtime Slicer, please make an effort to commenting on at least one new blogger’s post today. If you don’t see anyone new when you link up, then click on someone’s link who is new to you!
- For any teachers who plan to participate in the individual challenge and the classroom challenge (with their students), be sure to check out Beth Moore’s overview post about the Classroom Challenge. You’ll notice a few things will be changing this year in an effort to make it a more seamless experience for teachers.
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).
