This product contains 15 commonly used bland or simple words. Each word contains a list of more interested synonyms for students to use in place of their bland or simple words. Allow a writer to make their writing more interesting.
A list of words is available in the thumbnail, you can see what the flip book would look like after it is made.
In addition to the flip book, I have written a one page narrative writing selection filled with bland and simple words. The writing selection has been differentiated into different forms to meet the needs of your students. I used the same writing selection throughout to keep students all focused on the same narrative, just seeing it in different ways.
- Regular, unrevised selection for students to determine on their own what words to revise. Spacing between lines to give room for revisions.
- Same selection as above, but with bland or simple words underlined to help direct students on which words to revise.
- Same selection as above, but split up on 4 pages and enlarged with larger spacing. This way is found in non underlined version and underlined bland/simple word version.
- Same selection as above, but split sentence by sentence onto task cards.
Color and black/white version of the flip book and task cards. All writing selections are in black and white.
Teacher answer key with all suggested bland/simple words that should be revised.
Sample suggested revision, with revised words in red, taken directly off the word lists on the flip book.
