My classroom is not a quiet, orderly place.
Students are constantly moving, thinking, talking, reading and writing.
I do my best to help my students find success.

Reading room slogan SOLC #18

Join the Slice of Life Challenge!
Write every day in March!
Yesterday left me drained, but my 5th grade group provided some inspiration.  I am grateful to have this group!

B walked in and grabbed a piece of paper.   "You need a slogan!" she exclaimed.

"Sounds good to me!" I replied.

B thought for a minute, tried out some rhyming words, and thought some more.

This is what she wrote:


I wonder what other slogans, writing and poetry we will see from B in the future.  She is truly a wordsmith!

Have an excellent day!


  1. I love this! She was very creative, yet very correct!

  2. We sometimes forget that reading requires bravery and strength for some of our students. This is a great slogan for teachers!

  3. I am sure B was overjoyed with pride when you told her you shared this!

  4. This is great! I am totally stealing this for my classroom.

  5. What a great slogan! Something that you can post on the board or door. Hope you share the comments with B - she is a very creative individual.

  6. I love fifth graders. Most still have that enthusiasm that B showed for you today...and her slogan is great. We could all live by it. Jackie

  7. Wow -- that is amazing! We need posters made up to post all around the school! Love her thinking and creativity!

  8. I love that your piece is about such a small but awesome moment. And I love the slogan.
