Literacy Learning at Home
Wednesday 22nd September Due: Friday 24th September 2010
In Literacy we have been finding synonyms to extend and improve our vocabulary. For homework you need to use a thesaurus to find at least 6 synonyms for the following words:
Please then sort your words into an order that shows their shades of meaning. The words should build up and end with the most extreme meaning of the word.
Glad - pleased - content - cheerful - joyful - delighted - thrilled - jubilant - ecstatic
Look carefuly at the example above and please set your work out neatly in your Literacy Homework books.
Optional Extension: Write a descriptive paragraph on a subject of your choice, trying to use as many of your fabulous new words. See if you can WOW your teacher with your fantastic vocabulary!!!!!
