Day 3 of the Classroom Slice of Life Story Challenge! Let’s do this!


Made with Padlet


  1.  If your students are slicing from their personal blogs, then you should link their blog posts together using your classroom hub or personal blog. Then, share the permalink to the location of the “round up” of student slices. (Click here for more information on how to do this.) Individual students CANNOT link here directly. Students who are under 18 must have an adult linking for them. Any student links left without an adult link will be deleted.
  2. Only post the link to your students’ slices of life here. Do not post the link to your personal slice of life stories here.
  3. If this is the first comment you’ve left on Two Writing Teachers, then we will have to moderate your comment. We will be checking throughout the day in order to get your links up for the community as soon as possible. As long as you use the same username/email to log in going forward, your comments should appear instantly in the future,
  4. We invite you to copy the Classroom SOLSC badge and use it on your blog(s).


Today’s Question for Classroom SOLSC Teachers: How did you get the word out to your school community about your class blogging in the challenge? Please respond in the comments below.

For returning participants: Note the change to this year’s challenge. Instead of leaving the permalink in the comments, please leave your permalink in the padlet and respond to the daily question/inspiration instead!

  1. I periodically send out links to our class blog, as well as certain particularly excellent student slices, to our staff through email and our staff Schoology group, and I tweet out links from my class and personal Twitter accounts. Various staff members always get excited to read my students’ posts and often leave thoughtful comments for them! 🙂


  2. I am the only teacher in my district to Slice, but I continue to share this idea with colleagues and families alike. At Open House, I introduce the idea to families and because of some very motivated and excited writers last year (after SOLSC), my district agreed to purchase Kidblog for my class. My current class has been blogging all year, but the momentum has certainly picked up with the SOLSC! I’ve invited families to participate as well as our reading coaches and superintendent.


  3. This year, I emailed my staff a few months ago, to float the idea. Then again about three weeks ago once time was closer. Our district continues to grow with teachers who are slicing! We are very well represented on twitter (#d100pride) and that has helped so much spread the word, that every year, more and more teachers jump in, and with their students.
    I guess I haven’t sent this out to our school community (parents), but now I’m going to ask our principal to include it in an upcoming letter to families!
    We are also taking any staff and students who complete the challenge to the American Writer’s Museum (Chicago) in April, so that will be so fun!


  4. This year I made a document to help other teachers blog with their classes. It’s a work in progress, so I’m hoping to share it with more people after this year. I told my team about the challenge and another teacher wanted to join. I shared our website on my bulletin board, on our class page, and in an email to staff. I would love to see other people’s ideas though! We could also use more readers following along our journey.


  5. I sent this newsletter to the families: and hung a sign outside my classroom door that said “We are taking a blogging challenge.” Last year I made a QR code to each student’s blog and took a picture of them as the Blogger of the Day. I think I’lll start that again next week. I also need to get the word out to others in my school community about our blogging.


  6. We shared a letter with families, so they knew what their kids were up to! So far, we’ve shared our SOLC link with our staff so they can share with kids and we can all read and encourage our writers.


  7. I knew there was something I was forgetting to do! (March is such a whirlwind and to have the Challenge start on our ‘Friday’ I feel like there are balls falling that I can’t pick up until Sunday morning.) I need to tweet our blog link again and get the school and district media people to re-tweet and re-post it. Thanks for the reminder!
