Six Word Birthday Slice Day 24 #SOL22

Birthday workout made my age apparent.

I am participating in the 15th annual Slice of Life Story Challenge by Two Writing Teachers. This is my fourth year of daily slicing during the month of March. Thanks for stopping by!


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 at🙂 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.
