Sixth Graders Select Superior Slices!

SOLSC  # 12 - Slice of Life is sponsored every Tuesday by Stacey and Ruth from Two Writing Teachers.  For the month of March, I've joined the challenge to post a slice of life daily. 

My sixth graders are slicing with me this month.  Their entries are amazing.  Today, each student put a sticky note on the post they wanted me to read!  When you read the abbreviated version in this list poem from block 1/2, you'll wish you could read the rest of the story! Stay tuned for the list poem from my 3/4 block later this week.

Close call for a fish 
Tackle fest in the snow  
The Lorax
Fouled out
Cousin’s visit 
Tat, Tat, Tat, Tat  
Modeling dreams
Hail changes to snow 
Qualifying for sectionals
Brother’s first flying lesson
Seals lounging on the beach  
Accidental twins on Spirit Day 
Cold fan aborts Hunger Games Stars' visit
Engines stabilize and thrust up to max speed
Weaseling to the front for Peeta’s picture
Beautiful, bright, bold & amazing green  
Alley-oops & awesome dunks 
Lucy, the canine alarm clock
Grandpa’s cement knees
Rustling tree branches 
Catching a steelhead   
Mom's  graduation 
A goalie’s power
Backward name
Helping hands
Frosty sun
Top of the mountain
Surprise endings!

    1. Actually, I carved words from their slices to create the list poem. It will be fun to share it with them tomorrow and watch them look for their slices.

  2. Very cool way to capture their slices. I also like the way you made the poem look like an hour glass -- how appropriate since they are capturing "sands of time."
