We all want to be recognized for our accomplishments, writing included! As I peek at our Slices and celebrate our writing community, I can’t help but peek at our Kidblog and the blogs of other students from all over the world and think to myself, “I wish everyone would receive comments”.
During the first few days of the SOLSC this year, I anxiously awaited feedback from our writing community and was disappointed when I received none. As an adult, I can rationalize reasons behind why I may not have received feedback (maybe I was posting things the wrong way-which was, in fact, true … or maybe because there are so many participants, it was a bit like winning the lottery). As a child, it may not be that easy to wait for feedback from our writing community. As I peek at the hard-work and dedication of my students and know just how much everyone wants to receive recognition from others, I’ve decided to create a new SOL challenge!
What if everyone pledged to comment on three Slices that have not yet received feedback daily? Those three Slices should be written by three different authors. We always talk about ways we can make a difference and positively impact the lives of others. Here’s our opportunity! Will you join me in this new, yet simple challenge?
