Slices of Life from 2nd Grade

#SOL18 Day 28

My second graders have been slicing this year. During the summer I decided I wanted to have my students write Slice of Life stories but I didn’t want to undertake blogging with second graders due to technology constraints and issues with permission for students to use a blogging site.

IMG_8650I created Slice of Life journals for my students and worked with my instructional coach and fellow slicer (you can visit her atย๐Ÿ™‚ to introduce the idea to my students.

As I have been getting my students ready to lead their spring conference I have found some gems in their Slice of Life journals. I hope you enjoy these second grade Slices of Life .

Here’s a few Six Word Slices



Is it exited or excited? I think it works either way:)










Time for a mini lesson on homophones! Make sure you find all the hidden trolls!



This one might be my all time favorite and what a great sentiment for adult slicers too.

    • It has been a lot of fun. The kids really seem to enjoy it. I am bound to the curriculum and standards so the SOL journal has been a great way to give some freedom to my kids as we have had to move on to information writing and then opinion writing. I have found it has been a great outlet for those who love to write.
