Classroom SOLSC: Blogging into Week 2

Welcome to the April Classroom Slice of Life Story Challenge!

We are so glad you and your students are here to take on this blogging challenge for the month of April. If you haven’t already signed up on the Padlet, please share who you are and where your class is blogging from:

Made with Padlet

Please use the Padlet to support other classes that are blogging during the Classroom SOLSC. Much like we ask our educator bloggers to comment on three slices each day in the March SOLSC, we hope that our Classroom SOLSC educators will support students bloggers from other classes. We also invite our Slice of Life community to read and comment on student blog posts during April.

Be Inspired!

Sometimes a short video can inspire student writers and start conversations. Christine Hertz has started a fabulous collection of mindset ideas and videos where I found this video called “The Greatest”. It features a little boy who believes he is the world’s best hitter until he keeps missing the ball…then he has a new revelation! I plan to show this to my third grade bloggers who will be drawn in by baseball.

This week I shared some ideas that I am trying in my classroom for the April SOLSC! If you missed it, click here.

Let’s have a conversation! 

How do you keep enthusiasm going in the second week of blogging? Please share your ideas in the comments.
