Big, bodacious words is a fun, printable, literacy packet that I created to encourage students to use a thesaurus and find and add new, improved vocabulary to their writing and oral presentations. The kids LOVE it and our writing standards have improved incredibly. Everyone is happy!
It is ideal to use with small guided groups, literacy centers and whole class lessons. These tools can be used for a lifetime. The reproducible writing activities are suitable for 3rd,4th, 5th and 6th grades.
