This Smartboard lesson will help you teach students about the importance of word choice in writing. This lesson models and focuses on using specific nouns, vivid verbs, and adjectives. Mutliple slides address each type of word choice. Students can take notes in interactive writing notebooks, list some examples that are modeled, and begin to revise their own writing.
This is an excellent lesson while you teach the revision of writing. You can also break apart the lesson into 3 smaller lessons: teach specific nouns one day, vivid verbs another day, and adjectives a third day. Sometimes it is easier for students to focus on revising one particular aspect instead of many.
