One Little Word with Students

First of all, I wanted to start out by sharing this book. I go to the library every other weekend to check out books for my kiddos to read. I have many books in the classroom library, but they like the novelty of new stories and make a wish list each time for authors/titles they want me to look for. Whatever gets them excited about reading right? I found this book last weekend:



the author is: Herve Tullet. I was even playing with it in the library pressing the dots (even knowing they weren't connected to anything) and I knew my Little Dragons would love it. Each time they press a dot or blow on the dots, etc. it changes what's on the next page. We talk a lot about trying to encourage the kids to like reading, I think this is one example of a book that's just pure fun! :)

So I've been doing the One Little Word instead of a resolution for several years now. I put great thought into what word I choose and I do think about it throughout the year. I wanted to see what words my students would choose for themselves. Here's what they came up with:




                                              One of my athletes! :) Hustle as in sports.







                                              Tell my mom that I couldn't read and she really says to you need to read                                                a lot, ok? That's good for me.

Wearing fancy clothes thinking of amazing ideas instead of being a bump on a log. (I tell them they can't be a bump on a log in my class, that they have to participate).

                                               




My kids crack me up-he wanted to do one for his pet turtle! :)

    Press this is an amazing book. It's kind of magical, don't you think?
