PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

"Tired Words Cemetery" Putting Over-used Words to Rest is a FUN and ENGAGING activity that reinforces the idea of using creative, vivid words in writing.

Each student (or group) is given a "tombstone" with a “tired” word written on it. On that "tombstone" they write 4 or 5 synonyms or more vivid words that could replace the overused one when they’re writing. The "tombstones" can then be posted on a bulletin board titled “Tired Words Cemetery.”

Packet Includes:
Bulletin Board Title
14 tombstone templates (2 blank)
