Synonyms: Words that mean the same thing.
We have been keeping a little red book of synonyms. This is something we are setting up now to be able to use as a resource later. When we write in second grade we will try to stay away from "boring" words and use words that are considered more interesting. An example of this would be humongous, or enormous. Both words are a lot more interesting than just saying big!
If you have any questions please let me know!
