    "Said is Dead" anchor chart

  • Marissa (Bionic Elbow)

    Countless Anchor Charts here, like this, "Said is Dead"...Encourages "showing not telling" in students' descriptive writing with these alternatives to "said". I like how these are all hand-written, probably from a lesson, so that the students have a meaningful chart on the wall.

I want this in poster form. This would also be great for clients who have difficulty expressing what exactly they feel.
