PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

"Dead" words are words that are overused in student writing such as good, bad, little, and small etc. Students wrote an overused words on the tombstone and then used a thesaurus to find synonyms of that word. These synonyms were then written around the tombstone and students were told they could no longer use the "dead" words in their writing. This was a great way to review synonyms! Students then presented their tombstone in a funeral type format. I blew up the tombstone on 11 x 17 paper to give students more work room.
