Product Description
Nuances - Shades of Meaning in a Rainbow of Words!

1. There are 65 sets of color word cards in this product, each containing six vocabulary words. The first one in each set is an overused noun, verb, or adjective; the other five words in each set are synonyms which provide more colorful language for writing and speaking.
Teachers usually prefer to have the color cards printed at a local office supply store or an online company and laminate this set for classroom display.

2. In addition, the same 65 sets are provided for you in black and white, with the words shown in outline letters. They are designed to provide you a way to have the same information without requiring the color printing. Some teachers prefer this set for students to shade in and keep in their notebooks. Other teachers use this set to print onto colored cardstock.

We understand the moments when your students want to add their own words to your lists, and for that purpose we are also including a blank page of cards in each color. This will allow you to simply write the new words for additions to the lists.

Teachers enjoy using these cards at centers, posting them on a bulletin board or wall, or assigning them as small-group or independent games and activities. Many teachers provide students with groups of the cards and have them categorize the words into sets that are similar to utilize important word-work strategies.

3. We are including a separate pdf file with a small set of all cards (color and black-and-white) for individual use. These cards work well in a variety of ways. We have used them as cut-and-paste word work activities and creating thinking maps. We have also hole-punched them and put them on individual key rings for student reference sets.
Some teachers choose to have students exercise higher-order thinking as they rank the related words on a continuum from weak to strong, justifying their responses. These answers cannot be considered right or wrong. The important assessment is in the thinking the student demonstrates and his ability to defend the ranking with a logical explanation.Students will learn to understand and explain the similarity and difference between words that have similar meanings. Some of these words will be unfamiliar to students and will provide an opportunity for students to increase their vocabulary.
