PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Hands-on Language Arts activity/handout/worksheet for an English Language Learner/ESL student that needs modified classroom materials in order to be successful while working at his/her level of language proficiency. (CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.6.4, CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.7.4, CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.8.4)

Directions:
Denotation: is the direct and explicit meaning of a word or set of words; it is the dictionary definition. (D for dictionary)

Connotation: is the meaning of the word based on a shared emotional association: an idea or a feeling that a word brings above its literal meaning.
*Meanings of the same word can be positive, negative, or neutral.

DIRECTIONS: Sort these words into the appropriate category (Positive, Negative, Neutral) on the chart below. All the words are in a set of two (e.g. dog, mutt). Use a translator/dictionary if you’re unsure of a word’s literal meaning.
