One of my favorite (and easiest) ways to integrate additional vocabulary is by updating my "Weekly Wordsmith" wall. I have typed out the word, definition, pronunciation, synonyms/"how to use" tips for 20 Rhetorical Verbs and 20 Tone Words. I have also collected images, cartoons, memes, and symbols to aid with students' visual comprehension of each word.

In this Google Folder, you will receive:

- 20 Rhetorical Verbs + editable template (if you'd like to add specific words)

- 20 Tone Words + editable template (if you'd like to add specific words)

- Accompanying image (or 2!) for each word.

*Note: The document is set to print on 11x17 size paper, but they will print perfectly well on 8.5x11 paper!
