I really LOVE LOVE LOVE this idea for writing. This word wall contains McDonald's fries containers filled with synonyms that could be used for common words in writing. I found this idea on pinterest. There was no blog connected to the picture for me to give credit to. I just think this is an amazing way to get students to use more creative words during writing. Last year with third graders we did a persuasive writing unit. I was able to help the students to come up with some interesting creative ideas. The one thing that the students had trouble with was using descriptive and creative words. This wall would have motivated students to use words. It would be great to add words to the word wall as the teacher reads different read alouds throughout the school year. This way the wall's words will grow larger and larger throughout the year and the students will be able to receive two doses of the vocabulary, once during the read aloud and another time during writing. Kudos to whoever thought of this idea!!!!!!
