|I "serve up a slice" at Two Writing Teachers
and celebrate with Ruth Ayres at
Celebrate this week!
1) Time to read student posts - My students are posting one of their slices from our first week of the challenge! I can't wait to read their words. I'm still trying to figure out how to share student slices since our district won't let us link to the discussion. Maybe I'll ask for parent permission and post to my blog. I'm wondering how other teachers have solved this challenge.
2. Time to meander - I arrived home from my retreat with a few moments to meander among your posts. I feel extremely challenged by the number of slicers this year, and welcome the chance to meander (my favorite way to collect writing ideas). While I enjoy reading the slices linked to Two Writing Teachers, a slice that I enjoy will send me meandering through a blogger's earlier slices and posts. Is this because I'm easily distracted from the tasks I should be checking off my "to do" list? Maybe, but if I hadn't meandered today, I would never have discovered "Slow," a lovely poem at Learning Tour Writing Stop that I missed in January.
