Three quick things to think about on this Thursday!
- Writing Prompt:
- Give the students a list of random words. As you give directions tell the students all the words have to be used in the story in a significant way. This is a great exercise to drive home the idea that all the writing can be different in a class with the same prompt (standardized testing writing). Example words are firecracker, coconut, sword, and sweep. A couple weeks ago students wrote with random words and they were hilarious. They were short but complete stories. Small victories can be motivating!
- Is there a life experiment or program you have wanted to pilot but just haven’t? Now is the time. Maybe you wanted to start a book club, or a clothing swap, or a cooking club, or a mastermind, or a podcast. Today is your day! Make a plan and try it.
- This video makes me laugh every time. Fainting goats never gets old! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=az_SJQnsQZ0
