PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Word Choice Task Cards: The focus of this set of 44 task cards is to help students choose colorful, exact words in their writing.

The first 32 cards are written in a multiple choice format. (I designed these in this manner to help my students with the skill of choosing the most exact word from a list. I noticed that my students were eager to use a thesaurus, but then often used a "pick and plunk" method, where they randomly picked a word from the listing, and then plunked it in the sentence! The result were sentences like "One zesty day last July...")

The final 12 task cards contain sentences where dull, overused words (happy, went, etc.) are underlined. Students are instructed to replace the underlined word with a more "colorful" word.

Like most of my task card sets, I have included a bonus game-like answer sheet in addition to the more traditional recording sheet.

Definitely check out the preview- every page and task card is shown, so you know exactly what you would be getting if you choose to purchase this set!
