We made it to 2021! 2020 was definitely an unusual, heartbreaking, and stressful year. But for me it was also punctuated by moments of beauty and kindness. I hope you felt those moments as well. That’s why I think it would be interesting to do this activity with your students: Sum up 2020 using a sentence with 7 words. This is a great activity for grades 4-5, but you can do it with younger students by having them write a sentence without any word requirement. Click here for the activity and accompanying pattern. (You’ll note that the activity was originally meant for the end of the school year, but it works for the calendar year as well.)
My sentence would be: I learned much about my fellow man. (My second choice is: Wine delivery is the best thing ever.) What is your sentence?
