Common Words You Need to Spruce Up That Essay

Some of the most common words you need to write a good composition. Instead of using tired words like 'nice' and 'beautiful' why not try...

pretty, lovely, handsome, attractive, gorgeous, dazzling, 
splendid, magnificent, comely, fair, ravishing, graceful,
 elegant, fine, exquisite, aesthetic, pleasing, shapely,
 delicate, stunning, glorious, heavenly, resplendent, 
radiant, glowing, blooming, sparkling

Here is the list :)
Happy teaching!

A fighter's Lines: Lesson Plan

Tomorrow is observation day! Yours truly will be observed by the PK1. Can't say am excited but it's something schools do as a routine. Even after years of teaching and observations, no one can really say they enjoy being observed :) I normally have a habit of outlining the lesson plan of the observed lesson and keeping all the necessary files in one folder. Well, here's the plan. Hope I can execute it well tomorrow. In case you have better ideas you can still advise me o.k :) Just leave your comments.

Happy teaching peeps!
