This morning in our grammar lesson, Connor had to take a regular sentence that he wrote using certain parts of speech: Subject noun, verb, adverb, preposition, article adjectives, adjective, object of the preposition and rewrite it using more exciting words ($20). Shoot! It takes long to write out what he had to include than it did for him to write it! This is what he came up with. I loved that he went right to the Thesaurus and began searching. This is what he came up with:
Orginal sentence: "I ran far across their wide creek."
New Sentence: "I leaped skillfully beyond the racing channel."
He's alreadying planning an adventure story and life based on his sentence...
