Today's Slice of Life
We introduced a new organizer during Work on Writing yesterday- Describe a long-term goal, then a babystep you could take to meet that goal. (After re-reading several days worth of slices, I still can't find the post from which I learned it. Please let me know if you recognize it so I can give credit.)
Here are my examples:Someday I'll pay off my credit cards.
Today I won't buy anything on QVC.
Someday (June!) I'll go to the beach.
Today I'll exercise so my swimsuit won't make me sad.
We worked on this one together:Someday I'll be able to answer 50 math facts in 2 minutes.
Today I'll count on my fingers and use a numberline.
(or underline as one first-grade friend calls it.)
These are from a friend who got the point:Someday I am going to be a NBA player.
Today I can practice basketball.
Someday I'm going to be in Pitching League.
Today I'm going to play in Little League.
And this from one who didn't:
Someday I'm going to Great Wolf Lodge.
Today I got moved in school.
PS- She "got moved" for a totally valid reason and gave me attitude face.
