We talked about them. We debated our favorites. Those words became part of our community...until we used our OWN words. Using poetry every day as our inspiration, we wrote our own Beautiful Words. Those words covered the words of others.

As the year was coming to a close, we discussed what a legacy was. I wanted to know what they wanted to leave behind...what words got them through hard times, inspired them, spoke to them. Students found their words of inspiration and shared them on that same bulletin board...

My favorite thing about this project is the words they chose really fit them! Here's my quote...
"...beginnings are scary, endings are usually sad, but it's the middle that counts...try to remember that when you find yourself at the beginning. Just give hope a chance to float up. And it will, too..." -from the movie Hope Floats
