6 Best Writing Lessons Ever

Swatch Your Tone

Thank you to Rosemarie Aleman and Natalie Hodges who teach 8th grade at Hutto MS for this fun idea! What a great way  to boost vocabulary into our lessons for students to use in their own writing. They used paint swatches and as the hues change the words get more complex. EW believes that vocabulary should be taught everyday and always with each lesson you do!Can't wait to try this in my classroom!
