Help your students warm up their brains for learning about how words work with the Word Study: Connotation Warm Up. Part 1 of this full page warm up gives the word lamb in the center of a bubble chart, and students will write down as many words that come to mind when they think of this word. Part 2 asks students to select a word they wrote down for Part 1 with which to repeat the process. Page 2 provides possible responses to reference or to copy onto a transparency or to pass out as a handout. This document is also available in the Word Study: Synonyms and Connotation Unit Materials All-in-One DEAL.
