One Word, So Little Time

Ever been in the computer lab and the assignment doesn't quite take as long as you thought?  Or maybe you have some students who get done faster and become trouble makers?  Use this site to fill that gap in time.  OneWord is just what you think it is.  It gives you One Word.  It then gives you a Text-box for you to type a response to that one word.  You could free write and create a story from that word.  You could also create a poem where the One Word is the focus of the students poem.  Needless to say the website makes a great time any subject.

Once your students submit their response they can then see other responses as well.  It will refresh a word each time.  You might find that students really enjoy using the site with the opportunity to express their creativity.


  1. Interesting find! I have to admit... it did make me a bit anxious with the timer going. I can see many of my students enjoying the challenge, though. Thanks for sharing this filler!

  2. I love this site. I know have something to give my students when they finish their work early. It could also be a great way to kick start a class that might be dragging a bit. Thanks for the great find. @TheNerdyTeacher
