Slice of Life 12



Insomnia

Last night, I couldn’t sleep. So, to quiet my mind, I flipped open the iPad and surfed the Internet. Eventually, my thoughts turned to the Slice of Life Challenge. I realized I desperately needed to devote some time to commenting on more of my students’ posts. However, given the fact that 1) I was on the iPad and 2) It was 2:00 a.m., I was reluctant to begin commenting right then and there. That’s when it came to me. For today’s Slice of Life, I would offer a shout out in my post to the students' blogs I read while suffering from my late night insomnia.

And though, dear students, I really want to offer some “teacher” feedback (like please capitalize the letter “I” every time!), like you, I will limit myself to only positive comments! :)

Maddy: Love the storytelling.
Hossein: Great poem on gaming. Excellent use of rhyme.
Asha: Jane Goodall is one of my heroes as well.
Ian: Clearly, soccer is your passion.
Zooey: I love to read before I fall asleep each night too.
Lachie: I appreciate that you are making an effort to hit six sentences in every post.
Noah: You say you don’t enjoy writing, but I am enjoying your blog. I especially liked your "Currently I am..." post.
Zara: It is obvious that you love your big sister.
Coby: Excellent use of figurative language.
Kayla: Your post on the painted stork is one of the best pieces of writing you have produced this year.

Eric - I don’t give out A++ , you earn them. :)
Maya - I was surprised to discover that like me you transformed your “Hands” quick write into a post. I enjoyed the flow of your ideas.
Rafa - Great job using the mentor texts as inspiration in your writing.
Kirari - I enjoyed your description of Mana - she proved the perfect subject for your post.
Nathan - Your tiny stories are excellent. Great word choice.
Diya - I loved the before and after of your locker clean out. Your narrative really captured the emotions you were feeling.
Aditya - I am so enjoying your witty posts. Clever and funny. I am a fan.
Kelly - Wonderful post on boredom. I was smiling from start to finish.
Thomas - I can tell it’s all about soccer with you!
Xenia - Lovely post about Ayari. I hope she enjoys it as much as I did.
