Look up and collect synonyms (words that mean the same) for the word big. Just like yesterday, create a chart or poster with all your words. You can use colour and bubble- writing if you like to help make the words more memorable.
Just like your words for small, hopefully you will be able to use some of the words meaning big in your writing this week.
