The first day back from our semester break, I didn’t want to throw the students straight into content and work. I wanted to take a day and have them think about the second part of the year and ease back into the routine.

#oneword was the perfect lesson to do this.

First we watched Jon Gordon explain #oneword in the video below:

Then students chose their own words and created a graphic of them using Quozio, Google Drawing, or Pablo.  Finally, they posted them to a Padlet wall and gave a short explanation of why that word is their touchstone for this year.

Take a look! They turned out fabulously!
