Daily, public, posted writing, every day for one month.
My favorite part about the annual Slice of Life challenge is the refreshed change in perspective that I always walk away with.
If *I* think it’s tricky coming up with something to write about for 31 days, then how do I think my students feel when they’re stumped throughout the year? My writer’s empathy grows leaps and bounds in March.
I was reminded this month of three strategies that boost me when I feel uninspired: changing the structure, using someone else’s words, or tuning in to my senses.
Know what’s going to be fun?
Offering these types of supports to my first grade writers the next time I see those anxious looks of I-don’t-know-what-to-write-about.
Many thanks to the Two Writing Teachers crew for once again leading the way and inspiring us all to put our proverbial pens where our mouths are. I am better for it.
