To My Fellow Slicers

Dear Fellow Slicers,

We made it! Thank you to each and every one of you for helping me complete this challenge.

Many days I perused your blogs in search of inspiration, and I always found a new idea, format, or topic on which to hook my keyboard. You are an amazing group of writers.

Thank you for your thoughtful feedback. I learned more about giving feedback myself. There is a big difference between commenting on the work of my students and commenting on the work of accomplished writers.

Many people in my life asked me why I was doing this challenge; they didn’t quite understand. So I found myself asking myself the questions, “What is a slice?” “What are these things I’ve been writing about?”  This is what I came up with.

S – something large or something small
L – lifted from lives of one and all
I – inspired by individuality or imitation
C – cause for concern or celebration
E – ending with a sense of accomplishment

I won’t promise, but I am going to do my best to remain part of the SOL community by posting and responding on Tuesdays. I hope to see many of you there. If not….see you next year!

  1. Your acrostic is perfect! I always struggle to figure out just what I’m writing when I slice. “Is this a slice or not?” I’m bookmarking your definition to remind myself that I DO know what I’m doing! I hope to continue on Tuesdays as well.

  2. Brilliant and bulletin board worthy-

    “S – something large or something small
    L – lifted from lives of one and all
    I – inspired by individuality or imitation
    C – cause for concern or celebration
    E – ending with a sense of accomplishment”

    May I share this with my students? The rhythm, the rhyme… it’s absolutely perfect!
