On this printable, students practice brainstorming descriptive words. Ideally, they will learn to use more descriptive adjectives in their writing through this activity.
Copy this headstone on cardstock or construction paper. Write an overly used word under R.I.P. Have your students brainstorm other words, either individually or in a group, they can use in their writing that are more vivid. You can create a bulletin board with a graveyard of overly used words that would be a hit around Halloween. Now put those over-used words to rest!
