Again I have found myself with something every night it seems lately and my poor blog has taken a hit! I was pretty excited when I found myself some time and something to write about!
Recently a former student has been asking me if I was going to participate in the 2015 Slice of Life Challenge. I did it last year along with four girls and enjoyed the project. I wasn't sure if it was something I wanted to do this year since I can't seem to keep my head above water and didn't want to add one more thing. She brought it up again, so I thought I would throw it out to my class this year and see what would happen. I had one little girl in mind who I thought would love this project. And let's face it, sometimes we do things for that one student.
So I guess we are doing it! They wanted to start today, and I told them they could, but the official challenge starts on the first. It was great to see their excitement!
I too am going to participate. I don't think I will do so at Two Writing Teachers and through my blog, because I am just afraid it will be too stressful to have that kind of commitment. I can write easier in a notebook that I can carry with me. Plus I am afraid that I won't have very interesting things to slice about for a whole month. Excuses I know.
