Writing with Sparkle Words

I'm so jealous that Lauren got a chance to write about THIS ARTICLE, because I love it when someone uses a "good word" as I used to put it..... now I'm calling them "sparkle" words.

Sparkle words are words that "pop" and help enhance the story with good word choice. For example, instead of saying that the hostess was "nice" you could say she was "gracious."

Check out THIS ARTICLE for info on how to teach kids about sparkle words, and how to integrate the concept into your class.
