Product Description
The Word Choice Fit-It Paragraph goes with the 6+1 writing rubric. Students will work on making this "boring" paragraph more colorful and interesting. Before handing this paper out, I would generate a list of words to replace the overworked words: said, went, good, and bad. This will be a list students can reference in future writing. Also, encourage students to use their thesaurus or other anchor texts as help.

As you are assigning this page, it is fun to let the students use a colored grading pen to make their improved changes. Allow students to read their "fancy" paragraphs aloud.
