Are your students always using words like "good" in their writing?
This activity promotes the use of choosing other word choices to make writing more lively. Below are the pages and descriptions:
1. Students will use the thesaurus to find other word choices for common overused words.
2. Students will choose an overused word and create a web of other word choices that could be used. They will also write 4 sentences using the new words.
3. A word list is included of common overused words and synonyms that could be used instead. This can be printed and placed in the student's folder.
