Ten Top Three Lists #SOL24

March 30, 2024

Apparently, the trend is to do top-three lists. It looks like it started with WOWilkinson, so I’m just going to riff off of the lists I’ve seen since I’m at the wall with posts ideas. Directions from the original post:

When we’re looking for writing topics, sometimes I ask my students to make top-three lists. As many as they can. Top-three cereals, songs, movies, vacation destinations, holidays, whatever.

1. Cereals – Frosted Mini Wheats (Little Bites), Post Banana Nut Crunch, Honey Nut Cheerios

2. Most Recent Songs Added on Spotify  – “Tender Love” by Force M.D.’s, “I Don’t Wanna” by Aaliyah, “I Get Lonely” by Janet Jackson

3. Movies Watched So Far This Year – American FictionThe Book of ClarenceTurning Red

    Thanks for sharing. I’m a big Psych fan, but I’m not sure I could narrow it down to a top-three episode list. I wonder if you could also list top-three nicknames for Gus. I know MagicHead would have to be on the list

      Ooh, Gus nicknames is an awesome idea!
