Thank you for joining us for our blog series Looking Back and Moving Forward. I think we all agree on the importance of reflection in the lives of writers. In case you missed any of our posts over the past week, here’s a quick summary.
As we approach the end of the year, it’s a great time to think about and ask children to think about the growth they’ve made since the first day of school. In the rush, it’s easy to forget about the importance of slowing down and taking the time to reflect, and yet, reflection is a cornerstone of learning.
The more we show learners what the work looks like at different levels and the reasons for that level, the better they are able to self-assess, set goals, and improve.
We are all better teachers, better writers, better noticers, better people when we are finding moments to reflect on and share each day. Thank you to all of you!
Tomorrow is the last day of March and the last day of the 2018 SOLSC. We all know that, and it still seems important to say!
It’s Day 29. Pause and celebrate. If you’re still with us now, you’ll be here in two days! Share your post, read some of the other posts–maybe even someone you haven’t yet read–and leave some comments.
Welcome to the twenty-eighth day of the 11th Annual Slice of Life Story Challenge! Finish strong in this slicing challenge. You have all sorts of community members to gather inspiration from. Slice, read, comment.
We want struggling writers to believe that what they think is important and what they say is important, so important that we want to capture it in a more permanent form. We want them to believe that the process of writing, at whatever stage they are in, is within their grasp.
Finish strong. It’s Day 26. Write, read, and encourage others with comments. By this time, you know the comments that matter to you as a writer. Create those for others!
The weekend, we have a special challenge for first-year slicers, and we are grateful to Clare Landrigan and Tammy Mulligan for their generous donation!
You’ve made it to Day 22! Keep writing! Keep sharing! Keep commenting!
The third week can feel hard! We’re past the newness factor, and the end it still in the distance. Keep writing! Keep sharing! Keep commenting!
Tomorrow we begin. Onward to the 11th Annual Slice of Life Story Challenge!
