In the Language Standard of the Common Core (specifically the vocabulary and acquisition use), our students should be expanding their vocabulary!
So, I decided to use Fancy Words to introduce synonyms and the use of fancy vocabulary words. My students this year just loved it so much! They've been using their fancy words SO much lately. I'm almost sick of hearing the words humungous, spectacular, fantastic, and superb. :) Almost.
These activities are PERFECT to use with Fancy Nancy Books by Jane O'Connor
