Mrs. DeFors's Desk

Information and Conversation for 8th graders

Said is Dead! October 12, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — jdefors @ 3:53 pm

This week, the 8th graders have focused on using direct quotations and incorporating them into their “Shoe” Narratives.  One of the many topics we covered was words to use instead of “said”.  As a culminating activity, I am both saddened and proud to announce (please read with sarcasm) that we held a funeral to honor “said” and lay him to rest once and for all.

Students were given a list of many other possible words to use instead of said.
