SOLSC Classroom Challenge



Welcome to Day 11 of the Classroom Slice of Life Story Challenge! Great to have you here!



  1. Please be sure to comment on our daily inspiration/questions. We are hoping this will foster a sense of community among the teachers who are participating! Have an idea for how to do this even better? Great! Leave your suggestion in the comments or contact us using the information below.
  2. If you haven’t already we encourage you to reach out to another teacher who is participating in the challenge and partner up. You may find it a bit easier to teach your students to comment on other students’ writing if you get familiar with one or two other classroom blogs and how they work.
  3. Only post the link to your students’ slices of life here. Do not post the link to your personal slice of life stories here. Go to the daily call for individual slice of life stories to post your personal slice. This is the link to Day 1 only. This link will change each day. You should visit the Two Writing Teachers blog daily for the newest link.

  1. Each day we brainstorm ideas for our blog posts and whenever something happens or we notice something during the day someone says, “That sounds like a good slice of life”.


  2. This is a conversation I want to have with my students! Last night, a parent sent me an email to say that her daughter and a classmate were having a sleepover and they were writing blog posts on paper since their Internet was down. She sent me a picture of their writing!

  3. One way is through our Morning Meeting conversations. Having to focus in on ONE thing to share is the start of narrowing down an idea to a slice. Often they write about what they have shared and many times they have honed in even further than they did during their share.
