It’s been quite some time since I have launched Day in a Sentence, the collaborative venture where I ask you, dear reader, to boil down your entire week or a day in the week (your choice) into a single reflective sentence. Then, you post your sentence as a comment to this blog post. My job is to collect all of your sentences and then publish them together over the weekend.
So, what do you say? Do you have a pocket of reflective energy? How can you capture your week or a day in your week in a single sentence? Add your sentence to the comments here, and spread the word.
Day in a Sentence is back! (albeit on a somewhat irregular basis).
Wow. What happened to Day in a Sentence? It went on a little snoozer, I guess, as I kind of stepped away from the idea for a bit. But I miss seeing what folks write about when they mull over their day or week.
So, let’s do a Day in a Sentence, shall we? But I want to use AnswerGarden again for collecting answers, so: let’s do DAY IN A SHORT PHRASE (or word) as AnswerGarden has a character limit.
Come join us for this week’s Day in a Sentence, which is over at Tracy’s Leading from the Heart blog (great name!). She has an idea for thinking about your sentence and then, just leave it as a comment at her blog. She will collect and publish this weekend.
Here are the instructions for this week’s Day in a Sentence. I used Sketchcast again, although my microphone didn’t work. I want us to use Twitter this week for a six word reflection that uses the hashtag of #sixworddays
It has been a bit of time since I was the host of Day in Sentence. The writing activity has been making the rounds with all sorts of blogging friends, but now it comes back home. (Also, check out the article I wrote for LEARN NC about teaching writing in online communities where I mentioned our Day in a Sentence project)
I’m going to keep things simple and traditional, at least in the gathering of your words.
Reflect on your day or your week;
Boil it down into a single sentence;
Post your sentence here as a comment to this blog post;
I will gather up the sentences and publish them this weekend in some format (still thinking);
Here is my Day in a Sentence:
I looked around my classroom yesterday and all I saw were creative movie producing teams hard at work in just about every space you could imagine and there were no signs of slacking in the bunch.
My friend up north, Cheryl, is hosting this week’s Day in a Sentence and she is using Wallwisher for the activity. (Wallwisher is a virtual bulletin board). So, please, visit Cheryl’s Wallwisher, leave her a note with your Day in a Sentence, and come on back over the weekend to read what others have shared.
My good friend from New Zealand, Ken — ABlogger in Middle-Earth –is taking over as guest host for this week’s Day in a Sentence. Given the news from the world about volcanoes and such, Ken asks that we take our sentence to the extreme — really kick your reflection up a notch, if you can.
