This is a two page document to practice positive and negative connotation as well as denotation. On the first page, students look up the meaning to ten words (denotation). They then are to decide if this has a positive connotation or a negative connotation. On page 2, there are 25 words that the student is to sort into 3 categories - positive connotation, negative connotation, or neutral / no connotation. These two sheets would work well as independent practice or as paired practice after instruction on denotation and connotation.
