This week my students and I wrote about our one little word choices. I encouraged them to select an image and create a Canva. I’ll write more about this process on DigiLit Sunday this weekend. Please consider joining the round-up. This week we are sharing about OLW in the classroom.
My newest student, a gifted first grader, wrote this profound poem about the idea of selecting a OLW.
A word is like a leaf,
Everyone chooses a word,
At the beginning of the year,
Little do they know,
Their word is a leaf.
–Lynzee, 1st grade
This student selected the word “Astonish” which is quite a big word for her age, but she wrote a personal acrostic that helped me understand her choice.
My OLW is Present. My student Vannisa helped me write this poem as I was showing how Canva works.
