My 2nd grade niece doesn't like spelling. Lately I've been giving her some simple writing assignments. In her attempt to avoid difficult spelling words, she writes some rather amusing sentences.
Write sentences using antonyms:
"It is green so you can go. It is red so you can stop." (avoided: "light")
"Mom is down and I am up." (avoided: "downstairs" and "upstairs")
and my personal favorite...
"Fr. D is old, and Molly is new." (avoided: "young")
