The ABCs of Over-Used Verbs is a classroom writing resource for students. This resource includes 26 commonly used verbs and a list of ten replacement verbs. In my experience, Word Walls have been highly effective in improving student word choice and this resource offers an organized and clear solution to the over-used verb issue! This resource is perfect for a border around your classroom, or even to post one per week on a bulletin board for students to use.
Some letters called for higher levels of creativity of my part (for example, x is for "exit"). However, this alphabetical list of over-used verbs comes from true experience with middle school writers. They love to use words like "run" or "eat" and often do not consider alternatives. Posting a colorful resource like this will help students identify over-used verbs and revise them!
