I know it's been a million bajillion years since I've blogged, but that's about to change big time because I have committed to participating in this year's Slice of Life Challenge with my girl Michelle from Big Time Literacy. This means, for the next 31 days, I will be sharing a story from my life, whether that be something that happened today or something from my past (because, let's face it, my days aren't always blog-worthy... and if yours are, I'm super jealous!).
I'm especially interested in participating in this challenge because although I love learning new teaching tips from the many, many blogs I follow, I've realized that the parts I enjoy most are often when people share things from their personal lives.
Also, Michelle pointed out that as an ELA teacher, I should commit myself to doing this type of writing on a consistent basis because its what I ask of my students. There she goes being all instructional coach-y on me... and she's totally right!
It's going to be a challenge, for sure, but I'm feeling pretty committed to this. I have a couple ideas sitting in my draft folder for the days when I get writer's block, so I'm hoping I'll be successful.
So... take this as your advance warning. You may want to bookmark my site or you may want to hide it now because I'm coming back with a vengeance (okay, not really, but I love that phrase)! ;)
FAQ here and sign up here. I'm told there are some great prizes for those that participate all 31 days... and I sure do like to win things! And if I don't win, I think I'll treat myself to something nice like a manicure for completing it anyway! I respond well to extrinsic rewards. ;) Michelle, maybe we should do that together?!
