I just had to share...
Last week, my students and I began studying how writing with strong verbs makes the action come alive in their own manuscripts. We began thinking of words to substitute for the word, "climb". After thinking of about ten words to add to our list, I suggested using a thesaurus to help us out.
One of my Fourth Graders turned to another one of my students and said (and I quote), "Dude, a thesaurus?? That's hard core!"
I laughed hysterically at the comment. My class and I have now decided to purchase T-shirts with that quotation plastered on the front! All real writers should wear one as well! HA!HA!
God I love teaching!
