Slice of Life Day 9 - Connections created by the Classroom Slice of Life

Today's Slice is again about the great things happening in my classroom because of the Classroom Slice of Life. During the first 10 minutes of  the morning students were writing their weekend news, adding to our first grade shared Today's Meet and commenting on Slices of life posted over the weekend. I over heard a conversation between two students that would not have happened if not for the Slice of Life. May students have connected with each other. They share their love of family member and sweet memories of family members that have passed.
One student was looking throughout the weekend Slices of Life and came to Jakob's slice with a  picture of his grandpa. The student said, "Who?".  Jakob said, "That's my grandpa." The other student said, "He looks amazing!". Jakob said, "Of course he does he was in world war!" 
After this, several students joined in a conversation about post they have written about family members past and present. What a sweet moment!
