Product Description
Let your students have fun exploring word choice with these worksheets that allow students to analyze the effects of connotations of words.

Plus, you can scaffold your instruction using just one sheet:
• Whole group instruction
• Small group collaboration
• Individual practice
• Revision with the students' own writing

The sheets meet grades 4-8 Common Core State Standards in Language standards 4c and 5c.

There are two versions of the worksheet if you need to differentiate:
Version A with more advanced vocabulary
Version R with easier vocabulary
Both have answer keys.

I have added additional sheets so students can explore even more words in their own writing. There is also a sheet for you or your students to create your own connotation categories.
