Writing is working… Day 1 of #SOL14

What is it about this Slice of Life challenge that created utter silence in my classroom and how do I make it last? The daily five minute writing time tends to be somewhat chaotic depending on who’s present and who’s absent but today everyone wrote! A few one liners but students truly transferred thoughts to paper in silence as I sat in my chair unable to conjure the words to write because of the utter awe I felt. Is the writing working? I don’t know, but it most certainly worked today! 🙂


    1. Oh that makes sense! Thank you so much Donna 🙂 1st time! It was supposed to be a Monday post but for some reason it stamped it for Tuesday, I still had 8min left on the clock.

  1. What a joy to be a part of! I love that you are working intentionally to create a classroom of true writers. Keep it up!

    1. Hi Dawn 🙂 Yes, we do have computers and I will be working towards getting the students to blog virtually but I want to ease them into this, plus the computers are very finicky so didn’t want to waste precious class time.
