This packet is a list of persuasive words to help expand on students writing. At the beginning of the week, each student receives the list, which also includes a set of homework activities to help the students study/learn the words. At the end of the week, the students take a test to see how well they can spell, as well as use the words. I also include skills such as punctuation, grammar, and other areas of writing to focus on. Us this, and all my other lists, as a springboard for other areas of writing to talk about.
