#sol14 What Firsties Talk About in the Morning.

WRITE. Every day in March write a slice of life story on your own blog. SHARE. Link your post in the comments on each daily call for slice of life stories here at TWT. GIVE. Comment on at least three other slice of life stories/blogs.\
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.   



  1. I could read a book of those...

  2. This is just precious. Thank you for sharing their sweet thoughts...

  3. I love listening to kids talk when they don't know there is an adult listening! Thanks for sharing:)

  4. Ha ha I heard a firstie in the hall today say "My Uncle's name is Nacho!" First grade is the best!

  5. Kendra,
    This sounds like fun. I think I'll give it a try in the morning. It should be interesting.


    1. Cathy,
      Thanks! It wasn't planned, I just started jotting things down as they came in. It set me on a path for observation yesterday, which turned out to be a good thing. Thanks for reading!
