Before you start writing, set up your page. Draw a line where the title will go and mark off some space for illustration.
Then collect a half-dozen or so good words. A word is a good one when it jumps out at you for some reason. Maybe you think the spelling is odd. Maybe it reminds you of something. Maybe it’s a word you don’t know how to pronounce. Maybe it names something important to you.
Any word can be a good word if it’s a good one for you.
As you find or think up good words, write them in a line across the top of the page. Write as many words as will fit on one line.
Choose a word. Write down its definition. Then write something that begins “For example…” Describe an example that explains your word and its definition.
If the word you chose has a second definition, you can write that definition down and give another example. Or you can move on to another one of your good words.
Draw or doodle in the illustration space.
When you have filled a page, give your work a title. Write the date on it, too.
