Product Description
Tired of students using the same words over and over again during writing class? Send those overused words on vacation! This activity helps students to identify words that are overused and find better alternatives that mean the same thing. Students will practice using a thesaurus while developing a greater understanding of synonyms. A class book can be made of the words that are on vacation. I always keep this book in the writing area of my classroom that students often reference when they are writing.

This idea is similar to the "said is dead" idea where words are put to death and buried. I like sending overused words on vacation as it is more positive. When my students are completing this activity I play island music and we do the hula at the end of the lesson! Fun!!
