Two Writing Teachers have written about the Slice of Life on their blog. Head on over and check it out!
Here are the first three things that were said to me as the first grade friends entered the classroom:
1. "My birthstone is an amethyst. It's beautiful."
2. "My shirt glows in the dark. And Old Navy has more if you like it."
3. "Do you have a goblin shark?"
#2 and #3 were said by the same student, as if it was one sentence.
This is just a tiny slice of why I love my first graders.
