You probably won't be surprised to see the same vocabulary and phrases pop-up in their compositions! And...parents will be VERY impressed! Here are a few beginning samples.
Get your name in lights! As you write more, take a minute to send them to me, and I'll share this master list with you each month. It'll save time and add to our wealth if you contribute, and of course, I'll credit you with your entries!
