Click here for more information on what the Classroom Slice of Life Challenge is all about!
The April Classroom SOLSC begins on Friday, April 1 and runs through Saturday, April 30th. Many of us will be on spring break later this month. State testing may be happening in your school during April as well (it is in mine!) The spirit of the Classroom SOLSC is to encourage daily free choice writing within a community of writers, but make this work for you and your writers in a flexible way.
Last week, I posted on TWT a checklist for getting ready for the April Classroom SOLSC. I included the badges I use in my classroom and some other resources to get your class ready. Check it out if you haven’t yet!
While our challenge emphasizes telling stories about a “slice of life”, students may find inspiration from different writing prompts. In the spring of 2020, Amy Ludwig Vanderwater created a series of videos to help students write in their notebook. Many of these ideas and prompts could be inspiration for blogging as well! Check out the playlist of videos here.
Let’s Have a Conversation!
How are you launching the April Classroom SOLSC? How did you get your students excited for this month of blogging? How has your own March SOLSC influenced and inspired how you will approach this challenge with your students? Please share your ideas, insights and questions in the comments so we can have a conversation.
Can’t wait to read the stories of the many students around the world who will be taking part in the April Classroom SOLSC! Thanks for being a teacher who writes and makes time for your students to write their stories.
