In the beginning of March, I shared the Slice of Life Challenge with my fourth and fifth grade groups. All nine students were excited and wanted to take on the challenge.
9 students jumped in to write for
31 possible days with
15(ish) reminders during testing, over the weekends and
9 days over spring break
1 student wished he started 'slicing' in the beginning of the year to remember fifth grade
2 students asked me daily if I remembered to write
5 completed the challenge and wrote every day
1 happy teacher that all
9 participated and all
9 students want to try
30 days of writing in April
Many are wondering what will happen in May or June. What about the summer? I already told them I'm not going to deny them the opportunity to want to write. We'll figure something out.
Happy writing my writers!
