Fancy words are the focus activity for this original book. As Nancy uses words like plume, she also explains it is a fancy word for feather. We created a list of “fancy” words and added to it when we read other books. Students used fancy words in sentences. When they wrote the word, they added color, swirls, and extra doodling decorations to make the words extra fancy. The lesson was a hit and students used the fun new words in writing and speaking well after we were finished with the unit.
