Product Description
Connotations Task Cards is a set of thirty large task cards that provide students with a variety of practice exercises for the difficult concept of word connotations. Students practice recognizing the different nuances of word meanings and choosing words with just the right connotation.

The activities include:
Connotation or Denotation?
Positive and Negative Connotations
Illustrate the Connotations
List in Order
Choose the Best Definition or Word
What Did They Really Mean?
Replace Words
List Words

See the preview for more sample cards.

Each card provides a short assignment that is a great length for centers, partner work, independent work, or class games like Footloose and Scoot. Print the cards on card stock, or print them on plain paper and have them laminated to use over and over.

Providing practice in the use of words with different connotations is a great way to help students develop their reading comprehension and written composition skills as well as their vocabulary, and the variety of cards makes it easy to differentiate for students of different abilities or students who work at different rates.

These task cards support both the standards for Reading: Literature and for Language.
