One entry is simply a list of things they like - sports, food, tangible items, colors, etc.
It is somewhat difficult for my students because they are second language learners and don't
always know the words to use.
I made my sample on wordle and created my page for them to visualize.

There are hands in every room in the house.
One of my students told me that she thought it was a weird thing to collect.
I told her I couldn't be the only person who collected hands because I find hands in so many shops.
I once met an artist who also collected hands and her collection did not contain a single hand that I own.

Having the initials CC drew me to collecting the letter C.
Actually, I love all the letters of the alphabet.
