Sitting at a round table, I am surrounded by third graders. I hear their pens grating against paper. They are preparing to teach the fourth graders how to write a quality comment.
“Start a conversation”
“Make a connection”
A few giggles here and there. They know I am writing about them. I am writing aloud. I invited them to join me on the Slice of Life Challenge, and this is me modeling.
We are waiting for a few kids to finish their thoughts. I fill the moment with writing.
