Right-to-the-point reflection on SOL:
*It was a real challenge to write every day.
*Putting myself out there to possible criticism was uncomfortable at first.
*It may have helped me be a better teacher as I often put myself in the shoes of the child to view writing from his/her perspective.
*Reading the writing of others was a wonderful way of connecting.
*I found that I actually would have liked more critiquing of my writing to help me be a better writer.
*I did not try as many different writing strategies as I should have.
*Belonging to such a positive writing community was fulfilling.
*I want to thank my colleague who asked me to join her in the challenge.
*Thank you, too, to those who run the SOL and do the work to keep it going.
Until next year!
