📑Synonym Craze! 😵

Hello Everyone! I hope you're doing well! Today let's talk about synonyms!

Now, what is a synonym? A synonym is a word or phrase that shares a similar meaning with another word. For example the word "big" is a synonym for "large".

Synonyms are super helpful when writing essays or reading difficult passages. Here are a list of some words. Try to find the synonym of each word!

  • Begin-----> Start

  • Choose-----> Select

  • Assist-----> Help

  • Gift-------->

  • Finish------>

  • End---------->

💬Conversation Skills: Discourse Markers💬

Discourse markers are little words added in a conversation. They fill the gaps of a conversation when the person talking is finding an appropriate word. They have no literal meaning and can become a bad habit, as in the case of “like” or “you know,” when the speaker uses them too often. Common discourse markers in English include the following:

  • as you know

  • well

  • you see

  • so

  • now

  • uh..

  • er..

  • um..

😜Fun Facts✨

Hello Everyone! I hope you're doing well! Today let's talk about the season of Fall/ Autumn.

Normally, in English, each season has one name; winter, summer and spring. However, the season of fall can also be called autumn. Did you ever wonder why some people use the word "Fall" whilst others use the word "Autumn" ?

Many people believe that "Fall" and "Autumn" started being used around the 1600`s in Old England. With "Fall" referring to the "trees`s falling leaves" and "Autumn" referring to "the passing of the year".

However, as time went on, "Fall" became a term commonly used in American English while "Autumn" became a term commonly used in British English. Wow! The more you know!

There is a lot more history as to why these names exist. Let's read about it together in class at Kurashiki Amity!

This writing challenge, I'd like you to describe how the "Fall" and "Autumn" season feels or looks like to you! As always, I will go first!

Fall into orange hues.
Taste the sweet

Landed in a bushel
of colorful leaves-
some dull, some bright
as life ever proceeds." 🍂
