    Here's an activity I plan to introduce the first week but will continue throughout the year with various concepts. Here's an example of one that was share -"Have become my mother, shoot me!"

    Here's a description of mine - "Nomadic girl, living cultural diverse lifestyle."

    Some of you are probably familiar with this activity.

    Would love to hear yours.

    I love that book "Six Word Memoirs" - one of my favorites and I can't take credit for writing it but I thought it was fitting: "Crazy, but in a good way!" :)

    I also liked "I teach therefore I am ....poor".

    I'd love to do this with my guys but I think they'd be so confused.

    Mine wouldn't get it either. It's hard for ME to be that succint-but with kids, between twitter and texting they're probably pretty good at condensing their thoughts.

    I just finished a Writing Project Summer Invitational Institute (four weeks--intense) and we published an anthology of some of our pieces. Everyone included a 6-word memoir about the experience. Mine was "Maybe I will write that book."

    Never heard of this assignment, but it's very interesting & would be good to do. Let's see, for ME, I could maybe say (now this was just off the top of my head just now):

    Optimistic teacher and student of life.

    I have a 4 year old that is very stubbornly resisting poop training and a not quite 2 year old daughter in pull ups. So the poop is literal. With all the potty training I'm doing I feel like I live breath and dream poop. But ya there are good things that's just what popped into my head first.

    LOL, Mom my house is a disaster too.

    I did this activity this past year and it was a great hit! The kids really got into it. It is a great get to know you activity when just meeting the kids on the first few days. I'm probably going to use this activty for that reason again thsi year.
