The perfect complement to any connotation/denotation introduction! Five days of bell ringers that will have your students thinking!
* matching denotations and explaining connotations
* changing words for a lighter or more extreme connotation
* choosing a word with the same connotation
* rating words based on connotation
* grouping connotations.
The activities are scaffolded, with the first day being an introduction and the last day being an assessment piece. Grade the first four for completion and the last one for correctness!
Perfect for daily use. Pop up on the overhead projector and have students use a Bell Ringers notebook.
Great resource for a long term substitute!
Answer key included.
