Mrs. Farnworth’s 7th grade Language Arts students are learning about word choice in their writing. Students took time Wednesday to compare rice cakes to salsa (boring food vs. spicy food). Student received a small plate with plain rice cakes and chips and salsa to try. After tasting each item, students described everything from the texture to the flavor of the food items. Students then took this new learning and made connections to good descriptive writing using “salsa words.” Mrs. Farnworth then helped students examine their own writing and how they could use “salsa words” to spice up their word choice.
