These gravestones are of the overused and tired words (dead words). The flowers have more vibrant and blooming synonyms that the kids can use instead. My students have utilized this resource and word wall during morning work, centers, reader's workshop, writer's workshop, and many other ways.
Simply print, laminate, and cut and they are ready to display. Examples of how to construct them are provided, as well as the dead words that I use, blank gravestones, the stems, the vibrant flowers that I use with synonyms given, and blank flowers for personalized learning.
Flowers, stems and gravestones could be used in many other capacities within the classroom environment.
