Classroom SOLSC: The Stories Continue – Week 4

2020 Classroom SOLSC

We are rolling into week four of the 2020 Classroom Slice of Life Story Challenge and the stories continue! Students have inspired us with the craft of story, building themselves into stronger writers each day. What a beautiful way to have students feel so close when they are so far from us. Students are writing every day, telling stories, and growing.  

If you are a teacher, a parent, or guardian and would like to have a student join the Classroom Slice of Life Story Challenge, there’s still time! Help your students share their writing and join us.

Whether you are participating as a student, teacher, parent, or guardian, you are invited to read and comment on student writing in the Classroom Slice of Life Story Challenge 2020 Padlet.

Writing Tip

In today’s post, I am sharing a minilesson on using verbs to help students make their stories come alive. This is a video I will be sharing with my 4th grade dual language students. You are welcome to share with your students.

“I’ll tell you a secret: It’s not the adjectives or the adverbs that create vibrant writing. It’s the verbs.” – Ralph Fletcher, How to Write Your Life Story

Be Inspired!

Share your thoughts with us!

If you have any questions, comments, ideas, or celebrations from your Classroom Slice of Life Story Challenge experience, please reach out to us. Be sure to let us know what tips could help support your writers for the remainder of the April Classroom SOLSC. You are doing great things by supporting students in this story challenge. 

We look forward to hearing from you!

    • My heart breaks to be away from my class during poetry month. We’ve had to cancel our annual poetry reading on our local radio station. I haven’t created any poetry minilesson videos, but I will definitely look into it. Thank you, Mireya!

    • Thank you, Kathleen! So far, my students seem to enjoy them. It makes me feel better to know they have something they can reference. I also challenge them to guess whose writing I used as mentor text… that’s fun.
