Slice of Life Challenge

I wasn't planning on participating in SOL this year as an individual, but I did plan on having my fourth and fifth graders write slices for the month of March. After introducing the Slice to them today, we went onto Kidblog and everyone wrote their first post. Students only wrote short posts today, but they all made sure to revise and edit their writing before publishing. They were so incredibly excited about this challenge, that they made me change my mind. I will write with them every day, as well as here. My students' enthusiasm about this challenge is so exciting to me - excitement about writing every day?? I'll take it!
