#SOL17 On My Desk 23/31

2017 is the tenth year of the Slice of Life Story Challenge hosted by Two Writing Teachers, The goal is to write and post a "slice of life" story every day during the month of March. My seventh graders are also participating in a slimmed down version of the challenge, writing 10 slices during the month.

Slice of Life: On My Desk

(In approximate order of how long they've been on my desk ... Thanks to Elisabeth for the inspiration.)

A wind chime used to get attention

A ceramic crane a student brought back for me from Epcot Japan, in honor of our class folding 1000 paper cranes

A box for holding note paper (now post-its) that still contains a greeting from that student

A painted birdhouse in honor of the annual "Prepositional Birdhouse" lesson

A tiny squeezy koala bear, brought back from Australia (by a third grader who is one of my seventh graders now, but I don't know that she's noticed)

A nazar (blue eye amulet) from a student from Turkey

A gigantic painted pottery pencil - with wings and a cape!

A tiny clay blob figure holding a pencil and a paper that says "Katie"

A Raymie Nightingale-labeled mason jar that once held candy corn and now holds abandoned pencils from the floor

A mysterious wooden box with the question "What is the unbelievable FIB?" won at last year's Nerd Camp Michigan art auction

A rally towel from last January's Packers playoff game against the Giants

A bookmark from a student the previous year who dropped it off on my desk as a surprise

A remembrance for Amy Krouse Rosenthal

Two never-ending stacks of books: to read, to review, to hand out to students

Rarely ... me.

  1. Your desk is its own memory lane. Will you ever point out the koala bear?
