The April Classroom SOLSC began on Friday, April 1 and will run through Saturday, April 30th. I’ve loved reading the student slices so far! Please try to read and comment on some slices each day and encourage your students to comment on other slices too!
This week, let’s help our students develop that writing habit we established for ourselves during the March 2022 SOLSC! Many of us found that the expectation to write each day led us to live more like a writer- really looking for possibilities and stories in our days. Be sure to share some of your slices with your students and help them see where you found inspiration. I shared this post I wrote from the March SOLSC with my students and it inspired one of my writers to write his own post, which he entitled “In My Eyes”, using a repeating line.
April is also Poetry Month and many of our student bloggers will be inspired by all the different styles and types of poetry they can read and write! Jama Rattigan has a fabulous blog entitled “Jama’s Alphabet Soup” and she has included a thorough round-up of poetry activities and events, geared for students, coming up in April that might inspire your bloggers!
Let’s Have a Conversation!
How did it go launching the Classroom SOLSC? What lessons do you anticipate your writers will need to grow this month? What are you most excited to teach them from your own experiences blogging for 31 days? Please leave your ideas in the comments so we can have a conversation!
