For Day 2 of the challenge I decided to take the challenge to the class.
We are trying to write a story based on and using our vocabulary words. Students are given a 3X3 card filled with vocab words and they must create sentences in a tic-tac-toe format. There are repeat words due to the format. Here is my attempt.
New Age Art Show
In a small dark room, in the basement of the library actually, the art club displayed their artwork. The claustrophobic contingent of art club members paraded their work downstairs without fanfare. The contingent was filled with fledgling artists so the exhibit was dubbed “The New Age Art Show.” The New Age Artists created several items such as original paintings and replicas of famous statues. The small space caused long lines and extended wait times.
The Art Teacher’s colleague came to visit the exhibit, however the protracted wait to see the exhibit did not help his claustrophobia either. The colleague dubbed the exhibit a success, even though the fanfare was negligible.
Several students tried their hand at this as well. It was a great activity to help them further their understanding of the vocabulary words.
