Product Description
(This is a free resource- if you like it, please consider the larger version of How Many Ways Can You Say?- thanks!!)

Vocabulary knowledge and use is a reliable predictor of success in reading and school in general.

Do you want a way to access higher level vocabulary in a way that is fun and engaging but will also stretch your student's capabilities?

How Many Ways Can You Say is an excellent resource which leverages semantic gradients to expose students to higher level vocabulary in a way that does not require definitions or labeling tasks.

This activity is NO PREP and lots of fun! Students enjoy comparing and contrasting different words. What's more, students enjoy connecting these "hard" words to experiences in their lives!

20 words are targeted in this activity (and are represented in each chart). The words range from basic adjectives to feelings words.

Students create charts (whether in small group or individually) to identify the strength and weakness of words. From there, they can answer a few follow-up questions connecting these words to their lives.

Charts are presented in 3 forms, a grayscale gradient, rainbow gradient, and horizontal chart from "weakest" word to "strongest" word.

There is also space for "non-literal" representations of words (drawings!) to give further depth to the knowledge of these words.
