Slice of Life is sponsored every Tuesday by Stacey and Ruth from Two Writing Teachers. For the month of March we are challenging ourselves to write a slice every day.
Those who know me, know that I love chocolate. I learned a few years ago to keep my chocolate in my friends' classrooms. I have some stashed in Karen's room and Linda's room, my neighbors to the left and right. They replenish "our'' supply sometimes, but the lion's share is consumed by yours truly. Keeping my chocolate in a friend's classroom makes me less likely to eat it mindlessly, plus I get a moment to touch base with a friend when I reach for chocolate. Friends and chocolate, a perfect combination. When you add the words from Dove Chocolates, you're nourished in three ways. I save my favorite Dove quotes and post them along the top and bottom of my bulletin board. It's always fun when a student notices them and comments, "Hey, Mrs. B., I save those too." I could probably write slices from my favorite Dove quotes for the rest of the month.
