PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This vocabulary activity focuses on teaching students the difference between connotative and denotative meaning using the same word. There is also root word and suffix word activities for students to work on as well. I added a bonus activity called "Categories" where students use the part of speech to classify certain words. ANSWER KEYS ARE INCLUDED.

- Root Word Graphic Organizer
- Suffix Word Graphic Organizer
- Bonus: Part of Speech Graphic Organizer
- Connotative Graphic Organizer
- Denotative Graphic Organizer
- Dissecting a Word Graphic Organizer

Answer keys are fully INCLUDED!

Here are some suggestions to teach the lesson:

Mini-Lesson: Use the exemplars (the “Heart” connotative and denotative” graphic organizers to explicitly model your expectations for the activity.

Independent Activity: Ask students to use the dictionary or the internet to the complete the connotative and denotative graphic organizer activity

Enrichment/ Enhancement: Ask “advanced students” to come up with their own words that have connotative and denotative meanings on the blank graphic organizers

Accommodations/ Modifications for SPED students, 504 students, and struggling students: Partially fill out the graphic organizers (I would suggest filling out the synonyms and antonyms).
