Are you trying to help your students use strong vocabulary to describe feelings? This Feelings A-Z poster will help improve the quality of your student's responses whether they are discussing their own feelings, the feelings of characters in books they are reading, or feelings of characters in the stories they are writing. Posters can be hung on classroom walls, projected onto SMARTboard, displayed in writing centers, or used as individual word walls in students folders.
Another great activity to print--synonym match-up. Can be modified for easier/harder words. Maybe add some blanks where they add their own synonyms?
