Learning To Use Synonyms

This morning Mrs Anderson's writing group created a poster showing examples of synonyms. A synonym is a word meaning the same but a more powerful word than the boring word that everyone uses.  I also found out that it was hard using new words that I didn't know of and how to spell. We used google dictionary to find these words. Using new words were better and it made the sentence more powerful. This was a very fun activity trying to find another word meaning the same but more powerful and a word that we didn't know of.

  1. Super work Viva! You tried hard to experiment with lots of new vocabulary. I really like your sentence 'Max made a miscalculation on his maths test.' - it is very powerful. Your next step is to try and use some of these words in your independent writing.
