Slice of Life #9

Tonight I am struggling with what to write for my Slice, so I've decided to create a topic list that I can refer back to as needed.  Topic lists are an ongoing list we use throughout the year in my second grade classroom.
  • My dog, Sally
  • Betsy breaking her collar bone
  • Loosing my Tiffany's earring on The Tower of Terror at Disney
  • The Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue
  • My father in-law who passed away
  • The day I came face to face with a sea turtle
  • Friendship/Friends
  • Lessons I've learned from Slice of Life
  • A favorite t.v. show
  • What I'm reading
  • Why I don't like taking risks
  • My favorite drink
  • My favorite thing to do
  • Planning Literacy Night at my school
  • My plans for the summer
  • My favorite restaurant
  • Special moments as a family


  1. You have great ideas here! I just might have to "borrow" a few....

  2. Thank you! Hoping this will help with writing when I'm "stuck".

  3. I ike the list. I may have to try this is I get stuck. I especially like the last one.

    1. Thank you. I feel like that's all I write about is family memories. Although, they say you should write about what you know. Thanks for reading and commenting.

  4. I promise to go back up and read the rest, but I am struck by "Betsy breaking her collar bone." I have to comment now! I too am a Betsy who has broken her collar bone. The summer before second grade, I will never forget it. Swinging in my neighbor's hammock the wrong way, swing-flip-concrete-ouch. I hope you write about this, I am anxiously awaiting her/your story. Okay, I am going back up to read now!

  5. Thank you for commenting and reading. The second time she was in first grade. Funny thing is my daughter isn't really a "dare devil" nor a risk taker. Love your name by the way!
