Classroom SOLSC Week 1- Ready, Set….

This week, let’s help our students develop that writing habit we established for ourselves during the March 2023 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.
