PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Use this vocabulary center to have students practice finding the nuances with STATES OF MIND, such as sad, depressed, and dejected. Students practice ordering STATES OF MIND using color coded paint strip cards.

How it Works
There are 10 states of mind each having 5 synonyms. Each state of mind has been color coded to match a particular color card that has different shades of the same color (think paint strip). Each state of mind group also has a color coded sentence card using each state of mind in a sentence to provide context.

To set up: Just print, cut apart, store and use it!

What's Included
★ 10 word cards (10 states of mind each with 5 synonyms)
★ 10 color boards
★ answer key
★ student instruction sheet
★ student recording sheets
★ word cards for all 50 words
★ large color board to demonstrate in small or large group
★ reference card for Shades of Meaning

The activity can be used in three ways:
Literacy Center:put in a literacy center and students can practice, record their answers and check their answers independently.
Teacher Directed:use in a small group to reinforce or reteach the concept of shades of meaning.
Small Group: have students work in small groups to order the verbs by shade of meaning. Students will have wonderful discussions and maybe even heated arguments of the meanings of the words!
