My students are ecstatic about our Slice of Life challenge, this morning as I read my slice of life about the student who called my house the excitement about what a slice is rippled through the room.
"So really what your asking us is to write about a small moment that happened today?" a student asked.
"Yes," I replied, "in fact I have another slice I can share with you and it is in a form of a poem."
I shared my poem from the day of the writing test. Silence was all I heard after I finished. Of course, this is when my stomach does a little twirl because I am a writer and I am sharing a piece of my heart.
"Wow, I love the words you used. You are a writer too...just like us"
