I love words. I am fascinated by how words can change my perspective in a matter of seconds. I want you to feel that wonder too! Kids should have gobs of experience with the magic of words and so should we. Words are a way to stretch our thinking and make our writing more exciting.
Everyone should play with words and that's what we are doing!
What image comes to your mind when you think of the word soft?
Feathers come to my mind.
Here's how I might show soft in a sentence: The snow felt like feathers tickling my face.
Your turn. Think of the word soft. What does your mind's eye see? Can you show me soft in a word or two? Give it a try! Don't be shy. If you think of something after you've already been here, come back! Don't forget...we're creating our own thesaurus!
Feathers was my word to show soft. What's yours?
