Thank you to Two Writing Teachers for holding space for us to sharing our writing every day in March.
- I remembered how wonderful acupuncture.
- My neck, shoulders, and back are sore but healing.
- I was so thankful that my friend could sub on Tuesday and Wednesday.
- It’s raining really hard.
- I wonder who will have poems memorized for Poetry Rocks today.
- I wonder if any students wrote an ode.
- I’ve started Tell the Wolves I’m Home by Carol Rifka Brunt.
- I don’t like driving rental cars.
- I wonder why colon cancer is on the rise with young people.
- Daffodils make me smile.
I am enjoying your posts, and I’m especially intrigued since it appears you are a teacher in Portland, and one who obviously is an expert poetry teacher! I’m a third grade teacher who fumbles his way through poetry (but has a blast doing so!). Any chance of every observing you teaching a lesson!
Ah, I so appreciate all of the wonderful ideas I get from SOLSC! Thank you!
I really love this idea! I might start something similar with my kiddos! Thanks!
Looking forward to trying this out sometime soon. I’m also wondering about #9. We recently lost a young adult in our community to colon cancer. And #10 – daffodils make me smile too! Usually we have lots of them by now, but this year with our colder winter, no daffodils yet . . . unless they come from the grocery store. And #4 – I am really sick of rain!

It’s a group of students, Grades 1-4 who learn poetry.
I loved your post and used it as my mentor text for today:) I realized that I didn’t comment earlier-I was so excited to create my own list! Thank you for inspiring me!
Thank you! Makes my day.
This is a great idea for a slice, and I am filing it away for later in the month when I cannot think of anything at all to write about. Then I can write about 10 not necessarily connected things! 😀 What is (are?) Poetry Rocks? I cannot decide if this is just the name you give to student poetry recitations/performances (because poetry does, indeed, rock) or if it somehow involves poems on actual rocks, memorized, performed, and then hidden in the world to be stumbled upon by the unsuspecting. I really hope it is the latter!
I would love to get poems on rocks and hide them.
Love the last one…daffodils make me smile! 🙂 Me, too!
P.S. I wonder about number 9 as well.
Thanks for posting this! I am ‘borrowing’ the idea for my day. Have a great Thursday!
