The 100 Word Challenge was started today in Division 1. Each week the students will be creating a very short story, or piece of a story based on an image or a short phrase. The phrase that the students are using this week is "... and then I saw a bright light..." Through participating in this activity students are able to explore creative writing on a weekly basis and publish their work to the global community. Students will receive comments from teachers and students as well as learn to properly respond to others' posts. It was wonderful to see the excitement today and the ease with which students became focused on the task.
