If you’re like me, you may find that one of the hardest things about teaching creative writing to students is getting them to stay away from those overused “dead” words, and feel comfortable using stronger, more descriptive vocabulary...WOW words! This book puts those WOW words right at their fingertips and serves as a student-friendly descriptive writing resource.
This booklet includes 12 commonly-used words in student writing. Each entry word is followed by 10 synonyms (or WOW words), plus 6 additional spaces for students to add their own ideas.
The key words are: big, fun, good, happy, little, mad, pretty, ran, sad, said, saw, walked.
I have also included 2 different covers ("My Thesaurus" or "My WOW Words Book for Writing") to choose from, depending on the focus and/or terminology that you use in your classroom.
As the synonyms listed for each key word range in their exact definitions, this book also naturally invites valuable vocabulary lesson extension for deeper understanding.
Thanks, and enjoy!
