R.I.P. Overused Dead Words! Do you students overuse words in their writing, and is it time for them to put them to rest? This powerpoint will help students think of synonyms to replace the overused "dead" words! Create a class cemetery of overused words as an optional class activity. Add some life to students' writing this Halloween season.
I hope your student's use of overused words now R.I.P!

Brooke, I have used dead words and using a thesaurus with my third grade class for years. I ran across your powerpoint and shared it with my class. They loved it. I will purchase from you in the future. Thanks for the free powerpoint.
Thanks so much for your positive feedback. I teach third grade too. If there is every anything you are looking for, buzz me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Chances are I am will be able to use it with my classroom as well.
I have taught for many years in a variety of different grades. I have a degree in elementary / special education, and have taught in both an inclusion regular education classroom and a resource room setting.
