15 Mar Slice of Life: Our Life in Seven Six-Word Stories! #SOL18
This March I have been inspired by slicers sharing six-word stories. It is a structure that reveals a lot in few words. So, for Tammy’s birthday, I thought I would try to tell our life in a six-word story. Then I realized twenty-four years is a long time.
So I looked to another structure — Jennifer Allen’s My Life in Seven Stories. In her book, Becoming a Literacy Leader, Jen shares this professional learning activity. Teachers make a list of seven titles that touch on past experiences in their lives. Then, they use these titles to write small moment stories. I decided to combine the two structures. Could the past twenty-four years be told in seven six-word stories?
How could you leave out flour?
Pizza from box – takes a village!
No deer with chippy and chappy.
The ultimate yard sale, house included.
I’m the guest … I’m the guest.
Forgot to pull down – please help.
Fire us and buy some books!
We live life to the fullest each and every day. Thank you for twenty-four years of learning, adventures, traditions, friendship, crazy ideas, and plain old fun! I couldn’t imagine a better job or life. Happy Birthday!
