It's March! SOL#1
I rounded the corner hurrying to a meeting that I was already late for, when two 6 year olds ran up to me with big smiles on their faces.
"I wrote my Slice of Life today, Mrs. Johnson."
"Me too! I love writing! I even write at home every day. I am writing a book."
My mood lifted immediately, my anxiety melting away. I looked up at the first grade teacher as her students lined up in the hall.
Grinning, I said to her, "Your girls just made my day!" I promised the girls that I would come write with them soon.
This is what I love about the March challenge...
Kids excited about writing.
Kids and teachers sharing their stories.
Connecting with other writers.
Stories have been swimming in my head all day. I wasn't sure which one I would write about, until my encounter with two first grade writers.
So here we go...day 1 of Two Writing Teachers March Slice of Life Challenge. It's a month of writing, reading and connecting. I'm looking forward to the adventure!
