Important Words

Week 15 of the Wednesday lists
I love words and I love lists, which makes a list of words just about perfect. I have many, many words lists in old journals. This list is a bit different as it is collaborative effort. The words below are the ones my students think are important. I'll leave it to you to decide why.

Important Words

* cheerful * please * thank you * friend * you're welcome * responsibility * firefighter * stop * kindness * appreciation * self-control * curious * Army * gratitude * courage * read * respect * breathe * cerebral palsy * think * worms * chocolate * Hershey's * foggy * awesome * love * Bakugon * recess * monkey * hula * Cowabunga * tacos * dance * muffins * Yes! * freedom * learn * laugh * family * teacher * brain *

What are your important words?

I think your list is you - it's wonderful, joyful, and serious.

I feel like I could go on and on, but I'll start with:

Friend, yes, laughter, peace, latte, daughter, hope, concise.

Erin Wallace said...

Hmm - mommy, Jesus, depression, love, acceptance, patience, sunshine, community, family, together. That's what popped off of my head.

What a great list from your students! I am very inspired by their picks!
I have to guess though, the chocolate one came from a girl? Lol
Right now my important words are:
Love, faithfulness, Live, cherish, Life,death,family,gratitude,and most important God's Grace

"You're welcome" and "Thank you" are big ones in our home. Our 3 year old is always ending his sentences with one or the other. Which, of course, makes me beam. :)

My personal fave is "Belive" because there's so much strength in that one single word.

Great post!!

Hi Relyn,

Just shows how different we all are but I think you may have had a little influence, maybe on the chocolate! :0)

Your school kids are wonderful and sensitive. My list (let us restrict it to ten would be): Joy, Laughter, Family, Friends, Sharing, Pets, Sea-breeze, Learning, Honesty and let us end with Ice-cream since it is so hot in summer, in India.
Have a lovely vacation.

Derrick, Good guess, but no. It was actually a boy who said chocolate. Mine were laugh,cheerful, and family. The rest were theirs.

I like to link my words together. I also like to learn new words. I like to taste them to see if they're the right word for the meaning.

Lists? I make them so I can get things done. If I'm writing, it's blogging or working on my book.

Tracy said...
