This week in school we learned about how strong verbs can accent our writing. A strong verb is a more interesting word that makes your writing POP! For example instead of saying I walked to the front door, you could say I strolled to the front door. In the same way a strong man lifts weights, a strong verb “lifts up” your writing, to make it more appealing to the reader. Try to think of some strong verbs to replace these weak verbs:

  • He cleaned my clothes.
  • I have a new pair of pants.
  • Ann looked for signs to the park
  • I ate my ice cream.
  • She went to the woods.
