Chicken Cheeks

Students in second grade are finishing up a lesson on synonyms this week.  After reading the hilarious book, Chicken Cheeks, by Michael Black last week in library, students in second grade learned all about synonyms and were introduced to the Thesaurus and its many uses. This week in library, volunteers demonstrated the use of a Thesaurus by looking up words and sharing their synonyms with the class. While the volunteers were hunting for the words, classmates brainstormed their own list of words with the same meanings to see if they could up with some of their own original ideas. Everyone had a great, wonderful, fantastic, AND marvelous time!
