Lessons learned

Slice of Life Day 31

I am participating in the twowritingteacher.org Slice of Life Challenge where I write each day for the month of March. This year my three-year old daughter (now 4 year-old) and I are writing collaboratively. Feel free to follow along our month-long writing journey!


We made it! 31 one days of writing together. It is the best thing that has happened during this confusing time. Marlowe and I have both grown as writers. In years past, my slices have been mostly poems. This year, I have been forced to write in a narrative form to share Marlowe’s writing journey. It has been really great practice for me. Marlowe used to throw herself on the floor a lot in frustration when she couldn’t get her letters to look like the letters in books or in my writing. We have been trying to support her through some of her perfectionist tendencies but what helped more than anything we have done in the past is write each and everyday. She still gets frustrated every now and again when writing (who doesn’t?) but more than anything, I see her confidently carry herself as a writer.


Today we decided to write what we learned this month.Β Here is what we came up with! Marlowe’s lessons are in black and mine are in pink.



What did you learn this month?

  3. This is such a tremendous feat! Marlowe, a 3 turned 4 year old, wrote every day for 31 days. I’m so proud of her. I am also so happy that you two got to spend time together each day. You’ve taught each other so much. πŸ™‚
