This product is a pdf file that will help your students "brighten" their writing. It is a collection of colorful pencils that contain synonyms for frequently overused words.
This product is designed to be introduced over the course of several weeks or months and permanently displayed in your room for the entire school year. I recommend introducing one (or two if you have older students) of the words per week so students have time to use and understand these words. I would find a spot to display the words so that students can refer to them throughout the year and use them in their writing. You could make mini booklets for students as well. I encourage students to use these fancy words, instead of the same old boring words, in their writing.
This product contains synonyms for the following words:
happy, mad, sad, tired, big, little, nice, like, cool/awesome, pretty, fun, bad, friend
You will also find lists of words students could use in the place of said and went.
In addition there are lists for linking words, transitional words, and words that can describe how things feel, sound, and taste.
At the end of the packet are blank pencils in all of the colors. You can use these to write in any words you’d like to see your students use more often.
