My sweet students are great at writing the "bare bones" for their papers but lack the "sharpness" that takes it too a new level. I made this interactive bulletin board as a tool for them to do just that. The set includes 9 overused, boring words that I as a teacher don't like to see in their papers. For each of the 9 overused words, there are 12 different words they can use to "sharpen" their writing. I have also included 12 words for each of the five senses that will help to make their writing much more descriptive. Also included in this set are 12 transitions and 12 onomatopoeias.
There are also 2 options for bulletin board headers to help to set up your board. All you need to add to this set is a pack of library pockets to put all your "sharpened pencils" in:)
