Ambitious vocabulary. Writing holiday postcards using synonyms for 'nice' and 'bad' (thesaurus)

A lesson aimed at getting lower ability students to use more ambitious vocabulary. Students think of synonyms for 'nice' and 'bad' and then use the words to write a positive and negative holiday postcard. The main task where students redraft and improve the model paragraphs is differentiated. Tough: Students replace the boring adjective with better choices. Tougher: Students also replace the boring 'The' sentence starts. Toughest: Students change the structure of the sentences and add in similes and a full range of punctuation.
