Let's look at interesting words...
Let’s look at interesting words…

L.I.: to identify and select ‘interesting’ words within a variety of passages. 

P6… how are your new novels? While I hear some of you read I would like you to find *FIVE* interesting words (remember what makes them interesting? – unknown words, ambitious vocabulary, specialist or topic words, words you would like to use in YOUR WRITING etc.).

Please note your WORD CHOICE – DEFINITION – SYNONYMS in the comments box….

An example… no problem! < See Comments Box for Mrs Gray’s example>
