Mya said, "When I know my Slice of Life is going to be really short, I think of stuff to make it longer."
What are some things you add to your Slices to make them longer?
Dylan: I quit for a minute and think for a little bit.
Kelsey: I add made-up and weird words.
Claira: I add more words, like I tell them what's really happening.
Abi: I add important words.
Mya: I added what we did before we had popsicles.
Beau: I added my sister in my slice because I forgot about her and I added a lot of stuff about her.
Avery: I added a little comma at the bottom instead of the period so my sentence wasn't over.
Dylan: Think in your head what you're writing--what you'll write next.
Mrs. O: Sometimes I like to sketch pictures and then I remember more things.
Abi: Add things that are important to you, like friends.
