This 15 page booklet will be a valuable writing resource for your students. My students use this booklet for all genres of writing, and it has dramatically helped with their word choice. I found that while my students were able to use adjectives to enhance their writing, their word choice was not always as specific or clear as it could have been. This booklet provides a variety of specific words and expressions which are organized by topic. It is also helpful for students on IEPs with weaknesses in expressive language or word retrieval.
