They're Excited, I'm Excited, We're All Excited

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.

14 students!

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.
The checklist has been made. The notebooks have been decorated and now Ms.Wilson needs to buy some prizes. Fourteen prizes to be given three times during the month might be a challenge! If you have any ideas for prizes, let me know!


  1. Bite size candy is always a hit; homework pass certificate; lunch with the teacher; 20 minutes to play cards or board games they bring to share.

  2. Oh duh! Thank you Elaine! We have passes that the students can buy with school bucks, those would be perfect! Hope all is well for you friend!
