One Word Challenge

4 Jan

The last week of school before Winter Break was rough.

To ease us back in January, our Admins created the “2 for “22” project. On the first two days back in January, we all committed to not doing academic work. Instead, we committed to two days of community building and/or reflective activities. I knew right away that I would turn my annual One Word writing assignment into an art project.

Students would choose their OLW, but illustrate them instead of writing about it. I would take their words and post them outside my door. They could see their word everyday, and be inspired by the words of others, too.

Day two of “2 for “22” is almost over and I have spent the day stapling. They aren’t all up yet, but here’s what we have so far:
