My 3 Words

Today, I introduced the My 3 Words activity we do each year for curriculum night.  This activity is based on the Your 3 Words  segment on Good Morning America.  Basically, the students come up with a positive 3 word phrase.  Then, they put each word on a separate piece of construction paper and decorate it.  Finally, they come up with a creative way to present their 3 word phrase without talking and I videotape it.  I compile all the My 3 Word clips from all my student groups in to one video and put it to music.  The final products come out great!  My team then plays it while the parents are waiting during the curriculum/meet the teacher night.  It is a very fun way to start the year and the kids get so excited seeing the final video.

Here is one of the Good Morning Examples:


  1. Hey Justin! Just responding to your comment on my blog--with most authors, you can find email addresses on their webpages. Some only offer USPS mail addresses. I'm glad someone else is reading Gallagher's book. Much success for this year!

  2. Hi Lauren,
    Thank you for your comment. This is some really good authentic writing that I am looking for. Thanks for the idea!
