Let "tired" words in your classroom become Dynamite with over 80 pages in this unit. Enhance your writing program with these descriptive words that students can choose. Some of the "tired" words included are big, like, said, pretty, ran, etc. This is a wonderful addition to add if you are using Traits of Writing or 6-Traits.
Each dynamite bundle has the "tired" word printed on it. The dynamite sticks have the descriptive words that will replace the "tired" words. Print the dynamite bundles and sticks on cardstock for durability. Once the bundles are printed, you can place them on the front of a library pocket. The descriptive word sticks can be placed inside the library pocket. When students want to replace a "tired" word, they can choose one of the sticks to make their writing dynamite.
There are recording sheets included in this unit. There is a blank one for other "tired" words that may come up in the classroom. The rest of the recording sheets have the "tired" words included in this unit. You can use them as a whole class lesson or for student independency.
There are two versions in this unit: Color and Black & White. The black and white version can be printed on red cardstock.
