Word Choice Posters and a Free Worksheet

 Word Choice Posters
Words can make or break a piece of writing. If there are too many overused words, the writing is dull and boring. If words are too bold, the meaning of the sentence can become confusing or without fluency. Choosing a few "better" words can jazz up a boring piece of writing and bump up an overall score in an assessment. You need just the right words to capture your reader's attention and make the writing come alive. Words can create lots of different moods, images, and meaning in the reader's mind.

By introducing more words in the classroom, students will increase their vocabulary! Vocabulary is the foundation of reading.  Learning new vocabulary will increase reading and comprehension. Knowing more words will help students express themselves better and communicate more. One way to express themselves is through writing. When students know more words, they will be able to increase their reading and writing skills.    

One way to increase vocabulary is to have a word wall. A wall that is dedicated for just words will help students grow as good readers and writers. The word wall should be in a place where all students can see and utilize the words on it. Words can be added or taken away from the word wall. I always added spelling words, HFW, vocabulary words from our reading stories, and even our science words we were learning for our unit to the word wall. 

 Word Choice Posters
These Word Choice Posters will help students increase their vocabulary and improve their writing skill. The words on the posters can help students jazz up their writing and bring it to life. The 24 posters take overused words and give students a choice of 15 "better" words. Each poster also has 7 sentences to practice replacing the overused word. Theses sentences are perfect for mini-lessons or as examples for novice learners. Keep the posters whole or cut them in half. Use the posters for your word wall and use the sentences at your writing centers. Either way, students will be exposed to some new vocabulary, learn how to jazz up a piece of writing, and make your word wall look fantastic! 

Word Choice Posters include these 24 overused words:
bad, big, cold, easy, fast, fun, get, good, happy, hard, hot, little, mad, make, mean, nice, pretty, sad, said, see, slow, ugly, very, and went

Start collecting words and adding them to the word wall. Once a word goes on the word wall, it's expected to be used and spelled correctly for the remainder of the year.

 Free Word Choice Worksheet to replace overused words
Here is a FREE worksheets to help replace 8 overused words from the Word Choice pack. Students rewrite the sentences by replacing the underlined word with a better or juicy word. Adding better words can make sentences come alive! Click the picture on the left to download this FREE WORKSHEET.

 Word Choice Unit. Putting Old Words to Rest
Here is another Word Choice pack that I created years ago. This pack is more for older students with a fun sense of humor. It's a great unit or lesson to use during Halloween time. This pack has more centers and activities using word choice. "Said is Dead." Click the picture on the left to read more about it. I would not do this pack with 2nd graders or younger. They don't seem to get the humor in it. 

Have an outrageous time educating students about words!
