Are you looking for a fun whole class or center activity to use in your classroom? Are you looking for ways to help your students distinguish shades of meaning among related words? Well, here's a great resource for you!
The teachers I work with were looking for ways to practice Common Core Language Standard 5, so I created this set of words for the teachers to use during Daily 5 time. This activity was created based on 3rd grade standards but could be used in a 2-5 classroom.
Included are 10 sets of words that your students can use to analyze and distinguish shades of meaning.
This resource is not a lesson that describes shades of meaning, but allows the students a chance to practice the skill.
There are also writing resources included in the set.
I hope you enjoy this activity as much as the students in my school did!
