Today, Tomorrow #SOL19

I am participating in the Two Writing Teachers Annual March Slice of Life Story Challenge.  

Thursday night thoughts - I wrote and posted my slice later today than I typically do. I sit here at 10:00 PM and think about tomorrow's slice. I like having slices written and scheduled for 6:00 in the morning.  As I was reading Elisabeth's post at The Dirigible Plum, I found my slice for Friday. I just put a little twist on her yesterday/today format.

Today, my post was written after 6:00 PM.
Tomorrow, my post will already be written.

Today, I stayed at school until 6:30 for parent conferences. (Middle school parents never come.)
Tomorrow, I get to leave early at 1:30 and our spring break begins!

Today, I received a text message from my son, telling about the tornado warning they had.
Tomorrow, I get to see him as he comes home for his weekend laundry duty and home-cooking.

Today, my students made their book club choices.
Tomorrow, they get to find out what books clubs they are in.

Today, I tried a new editing lesson.
Tomorrow, I get to see the conversations the lesson produces.

Today, I wore school clothes.
Tomorrow, it's jean day!

Today, I am tired from the week-before-spring-break chaos.
Tomorrow, spring break begins!

Today is now yesterday!
Happy Friday!


  1. Reflection and anticipation in one Slice! This is an interesting way to connect the dots between what we've done, and what will come of it.

  2. This is a fun structure. :-) And TODAY sounds like it's going to be terrific! Happy jeans day and first afternoon of spring break!

  3. I do like this format. It is a great way to compare two days. Enjoy your Spring Break.

  4. This is a great format...I love the reflection mixed with the repetition. And enjoy Spring Break!

  5. I so like how you experiment with formats and prompts. Happy spring break! Good timing - you'll have more time to play with writing next week.

  6. This is a great structure. Have a fun weekend with your son.

  7. Wow, you are in spring break now. Have a relaxing time. The midwest has been hit with many crazy winter happenings, Leigh Anne. I also liked this format.

  8. Your slice was the inspiration that I needed today! Thank you!
    Happy Spring Break!

  9. Such a fun twist on the yesterday/today format, and I am totally borrowing this later this month! Isn't it wonderful to have a slice already written? I hope you enjoy your spring break and your time with your son.
