After hearing about #oneword on Twitter and visiting this One Word website, I had an idea to do something different for the new year in my classroom! In short, instead of thinking of a “resolution” I challenged my students to choose a word as a focus and a motivator for the year. The kids loved the activity! They brainstormed, selected and then turned their word into an art piece. They blogged what their word meant to them and also create a computer generated logo. Download the Smart Notebook file and PDF lesson.
While working on their “One Word” we were listening to one of our favourite artists, Matthew West and ironically, “Do Something” started to play. The song could not have been more fitting! My students know that their actions can change the world… perhaps starting with one word!
Our class video ‘One Word‘ captures the essence and meaning behind our project. We know we can all can do something to change the world… and sometimes that something starts with ONE WORD!
Please visit our GLOBAL Feedback page to leave my students descriptive feedback on their video!
