Slice of Life Day 8: Picture This

Photo-based slices seem to be my pace lately. But I’m still Slicing, still sharing, still enjoying.


The last day or two brought their fair share of enjoyment. Among the things I have to celebrate:

Second- and third-grade students coaching each other on their stories. Three Bears Coaching is my ace in the hole!

My annual batch of hamantaschen, gifted out to many of my favorite people and distributed in the teacher’s lounge because if anyone needs baked goods right now, it’s probably my colleagues!

My newest additions to the classroom: SQUISHMALLOWS. I let various students name them. Introducing, from right to left: Pickles, Cornelius, and Finn-eas. I don’t think I could have gotten any more clever!

Fourth-graders partnering up to revise their writing. I’m not giving anything away quite yet, but I’m super excited by this one!

    1. Thanks! And yes, the hamentaschen were yummy. The prune (and yes, I know that prune gets a bad rap) are actually my favorites…

    1. Thanks! I think it’s going to replace my original idea for a Two Writing Teachers post for next week. =)

  1. Ooh! Those hamentaschen look lovely! The prune ones have always been my favorites, too! And, while I do like the names of all your squishmallows, I admit to a particular fondness for Cornelius and the child(ren) that chose that name! 🙂

    1. Thanks! Cornelius and Finneas were dreamt up by the same folks who brought you the sewer-grate “Goo Goo Dolls.”
