Teaching nuances of words starts in First Grade and continues throughout the grades. Increase student's vocabulary with these 3 Shades of Meaning packets. This bundle includes:
Shades of Meaning - Awesome Adjectives
Shades of Meaning - Ways to Say Said
Shades of Meaning - Muscular Verbs
Working with synonyms gets students thinking about their word choices in writing and in daily conversations. The results are -- an increased VOCABULARY! Increasing students vocabulary is a goal at ALL levels. My first graders love using the cards and by the end of the year they all have their favorite 'big' word from one of the cards which they love to use!
These 3 packets include 28 word cards including:
9 'shades of meaning' cards for how to say 'said'
12 'shades of meaning' adjectives cards
7 'shades of meaning' verbs cards
That makes 120 adjectives, 72 words for said, and 70 verbs!
You will also find blank color shades cards for making your own word cards.
