I'm planning to once again participate in the Slice of Life Challenge hosted by Stacey and Ruth over at Two Writing Teachers. I tried last year as well as presenting it to my students: I had one taker and she didn't really write SoL as much as she did diary entries. I'm going to try it myself again this year and with my kiddos. I think my 7th graders will be all over it. They love things like this. they are the ones who did Nanowrimo with me. They're such great kids!
