We all put up a valiant fight to help our writers push the envelope! I like to use this as a word wall display for students to reference, but first I challenge students to match the exciting synonyms with their "basic, boring" counterpart. When I display the wall, I put each word up one at a time and allow students to add to the display as the year progresses.
