Say "Good-bye" Or "Farewell" Or "Au Revoir" Or "See You Later" To Boring Words!

I've been noticing lately that my students all love to use words such as "Bad",  "Big", "Small", "Good", "Happy", "Sad", "Great", "Ugly", and "Sad".

I am here to tell you that the days of using these kinds of words in my class are over!

I would like to introduce all of you to the new Synonym Wall in the room: Synonym Wall, meet Class. Class, meet Synonym Wall! 

I have posted synonyms for all of your favorite words on the Synonym Wall, words which are different and exciting. I have also tried to display them in the order of their seriousness. For example, "content" means pretty happy, but at the other end of the wall, you will find the word "ecstatic", which means EXTREMELY happy!

So, the next time you are writing and feel the need to write one of these words, look to the wall and choose another that fits what you are trying to say. Your writing and your teacher will thank you!

Coming soon to Synonym Wall: "Pretty", "Nice", "Mad", and "Very".
