Excerpt from Lesson:
All good writers have large vocabularies. Increasing your vocabulary will help you become a better writer.
Increasing your vocabulary doesn't need to be a boring task. Here are some fun activities you can do to learn new words.
- Read a lot of books and have your parents or older siblings read books that are more difficult to you as well.
- Do a word of the day or word of the week. Find a word in the dictionary, read the meaning and try to use it a certain number of times each day or each week.
- Keep a running list of homonyms. See how many you can come up with in a day, week or month. (Homonyms are words that sound alike but are spelled differently.) Example: won-one, mail-male, pray-prey.
- Keep a running list of antonyms. See how long it takes you to come up with 50 pairs. (Antonyms are words that mean the opposite of one another.) Example: fast-slow, hot-cold, big-small.
