A few weeks ago as I was writing a Tuesday Tip post, my 9-year-old daughter asked if I had discussed strong words vs. weak words. I requested she give me an example and she told me she would write some down for me. Apparently there is a poster in her classroom that has examples of stronger words to use when writing. She came home from school the next day with two pages full of word substitutions. Today’s Tuesday Tip is courtesy of my daughter and she hopes you all are able to fill your books with stronger words. (She also requested you overlook any spelling errors and messy handwriting.)
