Writing in class today? Need a quick warm-up activity to jump-start the process. Consider using One Word. –a simple interface, with the word “Go.” Try it without creating a username and password; however, regular use requires registration. Upon selecting “Go,” students will see “one word” and are asked to write for one minute about that word. When a minute has elapsed, students can email the activity to themselves or to the teacher.
- Possible extensions for the activity:
- At the end of a week, have students select one warm-up activity to turn into a descriptive paragraph
- At the end of the week, challenge students to write a short story using all 5 of the warm-up words
