As I post your final slices for the Slice of Life Classroom Challenge,
I must say how proud I am of every one of you.
You have all grown as writers, thinkers, and
observers of the world around you.
Keep doing what you are doing…
the magic is always there, inside of you.

Today is the last day of the Slice of Life Challenge!!! During the challenge, I learned to put more details in my writing. Now I really like writing a lot more than at the beginning of the challenge. Many people in my class really liked it and we all want to continue this challenge. The Slice of Life Challenge was so fun!!!-VC
It’s hard to believe that the Slice of Life Challenge is over. The class has written a month’s worth of slices.
Words seem to have become a permanent part of our lives. We’ll always try to use them the way they were meant to be used. Precious gifts that can change the world.
Writing is an art, a way of expressing ourselves without using color, but creating it for the reader instead.
Looking at things in a different light can change so much, and it has.
Because of this challenge, the class has learned how to do the extraordinary.
Words are everywhere, swirling like snowflakes, blanketing the ground with thick stories and songs and poems. They were always there, but we could not see them.
We piece the flakes together, and write. Endless fields of whatever. Dancing with our mind, body, and soul refreshed, our new set of eyes observant, opening up everything with a pen, pencil, our voice, an instrument, or technology. Emotions swim into it all, and finish the masterpiece. A true work of art. The magic found in writing. SP
Participating in the Slice of Life challenge has helped me to grow into a better writer. It has helped me build stamina to write more and have more fun with it. I now know how to elaborate and add more detail in my pieces and dig deeper. I also learned how to think more deeply about the things that matter to me. I put creativity in my writing and make each word have a meaning. Now that I have 31 slices, I can read them to remember the days in March and how my future self will know how I developed as a writer. I know that I don’t regret doing this challenge and I hope to do something like this again. SL
Last week was so rainy and the one day we had a nice day but of course we had band, it happens all the time when we have a nice day we have band. It’s not just me who doesn’t like that it’s everybody in band, but I cant do anything about it. AD
It’s spring, but its a bit cold all the other years spring was so warm. I mean the weather isn’t that bad, but just a tiny bit warmer. EG
Time passes really fast from a little baby girl from who I am now…I cant believe it. From a little girl who cried every single time because her parents left her at school and didn’t stay with her that every time she had to write something she wrote one sentence. All I can think about now is that next year will be more challenging because we have to go to different classes on time and instead of us having our backpacks in our class we are going to have LOCKERS!

Writing is a lot more then putting pretty words on a page. I learned that by doing the Slice of Life Challenge. Writing is about sharing a part of yourself with others. Writing is like the painting of the voice inside you that needs to come out. I’ve learnt to be more observant of the world around me. Writers look at things differently. Every motion. Every word. Pretty much everything is looked upon as a piece of writing. Some people write just to relive the moment twice. They want to feel the happiness, the fear, and the sadness. Writing is all about putting the reader in your experience. It’s not about saying it rained, it’s about making the reader feel the rain falling down on them. I like writing because I love reading and because I get to write down everything I’m afraid to say out loud. For me writing is the doorway for all the emotions inside of me to come out. The most important thing about writing is that no matter what you write it will always have a bit of magic that leaves the reader amazed when they put it down. AP
