Product Description
Many ELA classrooms have "buried" specific words to help students see how much their writing can improve by focusing on word choice. This narrative writing assignment will provide students with an opportunity to focus on word choice in a creative way. Students will be challenged to remove one vowel from their vocabulary while retelling an event they have experienced.

The handout explains to students how to select their "missing vowel" and provides some hints. Students will have to rely on synonyms, a thesaurus and rephrasing for word choice in order to meet the challenge. This assignment could easily be adapted for younger or older students.

This is such a fun and creative way for students to share a personal experience. My class couldn't wait to share their writing with their peers, even if it was just to try and "catch" their peers using a vowel they shouldn't be using!

Included in this download is the handout and the rubric.
