Dull verbs murder good writing. Help students invigorate their work through better verb choices and show them the impact of changing the single word that acts as the engine of their sentence.
The “Vivid Verb Word Choice Activity” bundle includes both a PowerPoint mini-lesson and a follow-up small-group activity handout. Together, these resources demonstrate the importance of precise, lively verb choices, provide students with practice opportunities, and enable them to generate their own “Vivid Verb Banks” they can refer to and add to all year long. Ultimately, students will compile a whole-class “Vivid Verb Bank” that can be enlarged into a poster and/or copied and distributed.
The lesson in this bundle is provided as both an editable PowerPoint file (with builds and transitions), as well as an identical PDF (for those customers who may encounter technical issues downloading a PowerPoint file).
A simple but effective way to help your students achieve precision in their writing!
