"Said is Dead"

20 overused words in writing and synonym replacements!

I don't know about your students, but my students tend to use the same tired words over and over and over.

"John was a fast runner.
"Sally was a beautiful woman."
"Katashia was a small girl."

To try to rectify this problem I have created 20 4x6 index cards of commonly overused words (that are now dead to our classroom)and sample synonyms students can use to replace those tired words.

In my classroom I have printed out about 6 copies of these cards and put them on a ring and attached them to my chalk board for my students to use when they are writing their essays.

Check out the sample for an example!
