This presentation addresses overused words and gives words to replace those words. 15 words are addressed: fun, like, awesome, happy, good, little, nice, big, said, bad, sad, laughed, looked, pretty, scared.
This presentation can be used in two ways:
You can print off each sheet and post them in your classroom
You can print off the both sheets for each word, laminate
them and cut out the words and put Velcro on the back of the
words, so students can go up to the board and take the word
back to their desks. This gives them a chance to more from their
workstation and choose the best word to replace their word and
return it back to the wall.
This document is editable so you can add to your word collection or
you can make your students mini books to place in their writers
The presentation ends with an activity that you can do with your
entire class or in a mini lesson to show students how to use the word trade wall and how it will enhance the vocabulary in their writing.
