Good Bye Boring Words. Time to Smile :)

You know THE words, right? Sad, mad, nice... Second grade writers can do better than that! Your students can too :)

My students writing can only get better by addressing some boring words. I had done the 'dead words' around Halloween time, but I could not look at the tombstones year round.  I wanted something I could keep up for a little bit longer.
I began thinking about my vocabulary bulletin board, and this is what happened after getting help from a few friends.

Synonyms are a must when it comes to making your writing come alive. 

My student teacher helped me put them up for you to see.  I wanted to show you more than one word at a time :)

Don't have a bulletin board?  How about using a binder to house your synonym posters? 

In there, you will find...

I did not create 1, but 3!
Chalkboard lovers?  Find it HERE

Polka Dot Lovers?  Find it HERE.

Chevron Lovers?  Find it HERE.

Would you super love to win one? Which one is your favorite? 

Pin your favorite. Don't forget your e-mail and your pin link. I will e-mail it to a few friends :)

  5. These are great! I love the variety of words you have for each larger word. I can see my kids going to this board over and over. My favorite thing though is that you've included blank pages so kids can come up with their own. I know my kids would love this.

      (If ink wasn't a factor, I'd totally go for the chalkboard ones!)

  6. Love it. I will definetly put in my wishlist. Thanks for sharing.


  7. These are great! I would love to have a copy in Chevron!

  8. Love the polka dot ones! This is a great way to add spice to writing and teach new vocabulary at the same time.
