How smart can you sound? As teachers, we all want to help our students improve their writing. One way to do this is to help them use better Word Choice! Having students utilize their thesaurus is an easy way to do this. By using these practice pages, your students will develop the skills they need to implement this skill into their own writing whle learning new vocabulary at the same time.
This also makes a great computer activity as the best part of this is allowing students to check their Grade Level Readability on their sentences. They will LOVE seeing how high their level goes by using better Word Choice. Actually seeing their Readability climb motivates them and makes them feel so very, very smart!
Better Word Choice! Yes, You Can! includes a thesaurus warm-up activity, 14 separate worksheet pages, and instructions on how to find and use Readability on a computer. Please check out the Preview, you’ll be hooked!
