One Little Word

It’s a new year. Time for One Little Word. Ali Edwards started the One Little Word project in 2006 and I just ran across a link to it on Mrs. Shaum’s Class Blog (I don’t know Mrs. Shaum but her blog is fantastic).

So, my word for this new year?


That’s it. Three little letters for one little word. But is it so little? I want to say “YES” to more ideas, more chances, more changes, more adventures, more opportunities. Even if they are scary, even if they are boring, even if they are…I’m not sure about this kind of things.

So what about you? What’s your One Little Word for this year? It can be anything…Here is an example of student words picked up from Mrs. Shaum’s blog as well as a few words to choose from:
