Like the Alphabet {4 of 31 Slice of Life}

Three stragglers and I were walking out to second recess chit chatting along the way.  The conversation was small talk about our day and week.  We just completed four days of standardized testing.  It was their first experience which made our daily schedule mixed up and not complete.  If we did a daily schedule each area was brief and some days we missed some of a daily schedule.  As we got closer to the recess door B says, "It's like the alphabet is a bit jumbled and out of order."  I paused and chuckled as I reflected on certainly had been four days of jumble.

Thank you Two Writing Teachers for fostering this writing community.


  1. Love this sweet slice. When we slow down and create space to listen to them, I truly believe magical things happen! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I love the way kids see life and that you catch those bits of sweetness.
