Said is Dead

Submitted by Isobel Cunningham; originally posted on Connection by Barbara

Most of these words came from Barbara who also suggested the title "Said is Dead!" I copied her, and put them into 5 columns on A4 paper. I then enlarged one to A3 size which I have laminated and put up on the wall.

I am also considering giving the pupils an A4 copy each for their folders.
