PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

My students LOVED this lesson! We discussed word choice during our personal narratives. Students often use "nice, good, bad, small, cold, etc" in their writing. We put these words to rest and choose more lively words to replace the dead words in our writing. For this lesson (usually around Halloween), we display the included tombstones with the dead words on the bulletin board. Students come up with more lively synonyms for those words and write it write on the tombstone. Then, when they are writing, they can go over to the bulletin board and find a better word! My kids are STILL talking about this lesson!
