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.

  1. Read a lot of books and have your parents or older siblings read books that are more difficult to you as well.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
