Thank you to Two Writing Teachers for hosting the Slice of Life Challenge. Please visit their site to read other Slice of Life stories.
Who can say no to a first grader? Our principal, Kayla Pinnick cannot.
I was in her office today, and I caught sight of this on her desk.
All four of the first grade classes decided to write a letter to Ms. Pinnick, asking her to join the Slice of Life challenge. She responded to each class, telling them that she'd be happy to join. Since these young writers are using journals this year, we gave Ms. Pinnick her own special Slice of Life journal. She writes faithfully and checks in with the kids to see how they're doing.
I feel so fortunate to have such a supportive principal. She's a busy lady, and yet, she sees the value in modeling for the students the importance of being a writer.
Thank you Ms. Pinnick!
