For the third year, I will be participating in the Two Writing Teachers Slice of Life Story Challenge. This year’s challenge begins on Thursday, March 1st.
From the Two Writing Teachers website:
The mission of this online challenge was to support teachers who wanted to write daily. The purpose was to create a community of teacher-writers who would be able to better support the students they serve in writing workshops daily. Teachers were invited to write a slice of life story on their own blog and then share the link to their story on this blog’s call for slice of life stories. Then, each person who left a link to their blog visited at least three other people’s blogs to comment on their slice of life writing.
It is simple: Teachers who write are better teachers of writing.
I completed the challenge last year but was only able to write part of the month the time before when I was still a reading specialist. The partial year I went to Hawaii for Spring Break and lost my rhythm. Later that year, I ran into Stacy one of the Two Writing Teachers herself at a conference and she recognized my name as a Slicer! I vowed then to participate again.
Come join this awesome writing community with me! You’ll become a better writer and make some connections you will treasure.
