We are participating in a modified way in the Two Writing Teachers' Classroom Challenge. Since my students don't have individual blogs, they are writing a slice every day in their writer's notebooks. Several times a week I will select a few to post here, on our classroom blog, to link up with other classroom slicers. We are writing memoirs this month, so many students are writing about memories. I gave them a choice, though, so some slices are about other topics. We'd love for you to comment on any or all the slices I scanned and posted. I hope you can read them okay. I'm slicing, too, right along with my students, on my own blog: http://hollymueller.blogspot.com/
I've started reading Twelve Kinds of Ice aloud, and we're practicing identifying figurative language and sensory details so we can put it into our own memoirs and Slices of Life. The memoir writing continues. Enjoy!
We'd love to hear your comments!
