Third Day Slump

    Today is my third slice and the hardest.   I have sat here with my students as they write and I have writer's block with them. I was able to give the students several ideas, but I am drawing a blank for my own writing.
    So, I will create a list of ideas for the next time I am stuck.
Master work
K following Q
Persuasive Letters
Q summer plans

I am sure there are more to write about, but I can't think any now.


  1. These are the tough days, but it sure makes it easier to understand our students. Now I have a million questions about the list. K following Q - are those your boys? Decorations? I love them which reminds me it's time to put the bunnies on the mantle to welcome spring! Looking forward to your future posts.

  2. You will be so happy when you finish your Med. Lists are always great to write about in the slice and they always help me get unstuck. xo

  3. I feel for you! I can see my slump coming up tomorrow! Sure makes me feel for my students.

  4. Lists are helpful. We often just have to fly with the first topic our brain blurts... Or grab one from a list. Then the writing begins, and you get to discover whee it was hiding.

  5. Some days are just like that. I appreciate your plain honestly.

    My kids love your "fish bowl" on here.
