IMG_0626[1]Today we did something fun :o) We made synonym buns! We learned about words that mean the same thing even though they are different - like scrumptious and yummy. Then we got into partners using good old popcorn containers and crumbled "popcorn" balls, each of the students pull a "boring" word and then have to brainstorm with a partner some synonyms. Then they follow a recipe that calls for dash of "thesaurus" - so we used the ipad, iphone, computer, and paper thesaurus. Then they recorded their synonyms onto "icing" and made synonym rolls.
