Beginning March 1st, my Tiger Bloggers and I are going to be writing Slice of Life stories each day and posting them here on Big Time Literacy. Each day I will post my Slice of Life and then, separately, collect all my student blogs. We hope that you will check this blog each day to read our stories!
A Slice of Life Story is a little look into our day-to-day lives. It is a story about a small segment of our lives, a poem that tells about a small moment in time, or a collection of words and pictures that describes a scenario. I am challenging my Tiger Bloggers to write for at least 25 of the 31 days of March!
Last year, I invited JennieB to participate with this challenge and she did, for all 31 days. This year, she's bringing her third graders on board with her! This year, I'd like to invite a few more of my teacher-writer friends - Colleen from Literacy Loving Gals, Erin from Miss Lifesaver, Leah at Responsive Literacy, and Christine over at Just Jantz. I hope you'll consider growing your writing stamina with me. It's such a fun way to share with our writing community and learn more about being a writer!
I know writing for 31 days is a tall order, but set your own goal if you'd like! Write three times a week or on at least 20 days. You can make this challenge your own!
Teachers of writing: I can't think of a more perfect challenge for you - it really does take you through the motions of writing and give you strong insight into what our students are asked to do!
For more information on this challenge, check out this post at Two Writing Teachers. I hope you will join us...and feel free to invite more friends!
