The Finished Product

SOLC: Day 31

Each year during this challenge I take my daily slices and create a Shutterfly book.  I love the feeling when the book arrives and I place my book of slices on the coffee table for others to enjoy.  For me there is a sense of accomplishment at seeing them in a finished bound book.  I also get to take them with me to share with students as they work through the writing process.

Thank you to everyone who read and commented on my slices throughout this challenge.

As soon as I post this slice I will complete the last page of this year’s book, place my order, and wait for it to arrive.

Here are some of the previous year’s books.

  1. Just when I thought no more new teaching ideas would emerge today, your post comes along! What an incredible way to make your blog tangible and shareable in the absence of technology… 31 mentor texts you can show kids… ❤️❤️ Love it!

  2. Oh my goodness! I love this idea. This is only my second year but I think I am going to do this from my posts last year and this year. What a great memory. And reading material

  3. That is so great! I blog with my students and, at the beginning of the challenge, I share my blog with them and read some of my posts. They seem to like my blog as well as they like our read-aloud. If I turned my posts into a Shutterfly book, I could put it in our library. Thanks for another great idea–even on the last day of the challenge.

  4. I print mine out for my One Little Word book but this year I’m creating a Blurb book with parts and portions. it is fun to look back through and remember.
