Tired of your students always using the same simple nouns, verbs, and adjectives in their fall writing? Help expand their vocabulary with this shades of meaning word sort and writing craft that’s perfect for fall.
Students practice analyzing synonyms and write them on the heart “leaves” of their fall tree craft. The fall trees not only look seasonal when displayed in the classroom, but they are also a great visual on the wall for students to refer to when they want to use more advanced vocabulary during independent writing time.
This resource comes with:
- A bulletin board heading (with fall leaf letters that can be arranged on the wall or hole punched to create a hanging banner)
- 24 sets of fall-themed synonym word boxes (for sorting, coloring from lightest to darkest based on their meaning, etc.)
- A template for the fall tree craft complete with directions and visual samples for the teacher.
