I must admit when my colleague, Mrs. Peters suggested entering the Slice of Life Classroom blogging challenge, although excited I was not sure if our classes could continue blogging for 31 days straight.
By the end of March 124 grade 6 students will have written 31 slices each , that equals a staggering 3,844 blog entries!
To date, I'm so proud that we have take part in this initiative and as educators we have witnessed many positive outcomes:-
- Students like to write about their life
- Students writing fluency has improved
- Studentws like a global audience
- Students are excited that other students can read their musings, and provide comments.
As spring break is upon us, we know that there is a possibility that the slices may be slow, however, stay posted to read our latest updates.
