Ready made word lists for the upper grades!!! Help your students find the best word(s) by having this resource available to them all year long. When students are in the revising stage of their writing, which can be the most difficult for them since, "they like the way it sound already," this resource is invaluable. I encourage them to seek out words they do not usually use in their writing to expand their vocabulary and word usage.
Suggested ways to use these pages:
1) After lessons on each concept, hand out the appropriate pages to the students and have them practice writing sentences using words they do not usually use. They should keep these lists to refer back to the rest of the year.
1) Copy the lists on different colored paper and put in a writing folder - one for each student.
2) Copy the lists on different colored paper and place each in a protective sheet in a folder with clasps to use as a permanent reference in your classroom - and keep in a place in your classroom for students to have easy access.
The word lists in this product include:
150 synonyms for said
