Silce Of Life Day 27~Even Mickey Mouse Can't Hold Down These Writers!

Thank you to Two Writing Teachers for hosting the Slice of Life March challenge.  I am joining other bloggers and writing every day in March.  Please visit their site to read other slices and please remember to let the blogger know you read their post, share the love in the comments! 

Today's post is a testament to power of the Slice of Life Writing Challenge.  #SOL15 Takes On Mickey! 

This week is spring break in our district and I worried about  writers dropping out.  As we shared our SOL lunch last Tuesday I asked the writers what their writing plans were over spring.  A few scoffed, "It's spring break!"  Zyg piped up, "Yeah, that's going to make it even more of a writing challenge! I can blog on my mom's phone, because we are going to at Disney?"  Then, Avery spoke up and posed the Avery Challenge~ "I am going to write everyday on my vacation, because if I don't I will miss it!" The writers united and the Avery challenge was on! 

This week I have been moderating, approving and linking post much like another week with 5-7 kids consistently writing.  Yesterday, I realized these 5-7 kids were on spring break, most in Disney and  STILL they post everyday!  This deserves special recognition, so I tweeted out our link and look what happened! 

Zyg got a comment from Mr. Webb and Room Three in New Zealand! 
As soon as I approved this comment I texted Zyg's mom- her response made my day and inspired this post!


  1. WOW! That's amazing!

  2. Well its nice to know that it might inspire someone with their writing. Leaving comments tends to be the thing that most inspires writers of any age. As it happens I do live on nearly the other side of the world so that probably was a bit different - we are in a relatively obscure rural community in South Taranaki, New Zealand. I've been online for about ten years and left a few comments (I did count one year when I tried to do everyone for Will Chamberlain of #comments4kids but gave up after about 500...) and so for our students an authentic global audience is an important one... so nice to know that it got you some positive feedback.

  3. That's great! I've had 3 consistent Spring Break posters, which is more than last year and more than I expected. I do expect a couple to have written in their journals and will add them to Kidblog next week. So glad your kiddos are so excited.
