The four more important words to ban are: "good," "bad," "went," and "said. " Other worthy candidates include: "nice," "walked," and "then. " Step 2 - Brainstorm Synonyms And Use Them Instead One by one, the students should work together to brainstorm more exciting and effective synonyms of a given banned word.

10 Digital Writing Opportunities You Probably Know and 10 You Probably Don’t

It was a meeting all about ideas (my favourite) and we discussed the best ways that technology could support the process of writing and drive the eventual outcomes. In this post I have included a list of 10 literacy/writing tools or outcomes that, in my opinion, teachers should currently be aware of. Many of them are basic yet still powerful tools in the classroom that support children’s writing.

They are in no particular order. In addition I have also included 10 alternative tools that either offer a different perspective on digital writing or are a little known tool, that may have huge potential in the classroom. 1 – Photostory – in my opinion one of the simplest and yet most powerful tools for primary literacy. 7 – Museum Box – Thanks to smilin7 for suggesting this one.
