This turkey season Room 102 was all about synonyms. A mini lesson on the thesaurus taught students the right word can make a sentence sound interesting and fun. A trip to computer lab introduced students to an online thesaurus ake care when using a thesaurus. Each word listed as a synonym may have its own unique meaning. Students must be sure the synonym really fits the context.
The fun began when students colored their turkeys . . .
. . . then recorded synonyms.
This Thanksgiving season I am truly thankful - appreciative - beholden - grateful for my students. Their pure energy and smiles make learning fun.
