    Use when teaching synonyms. Especially over used words. Give each student a word and have them fill in paint chip with different words. Also helps kids use thesaurus. Great idea for a language arts center. Then hang in classroom and kids can use in their writings. - Interesting Idea....i'm sure I can use this concept with History/Econ somehow!

    Shades of meaning! SUPPLIES: paint chips, construction paper, marker, tape & a thesaurus ::: The colors on the paint strip are similar, but not exactly the same... just like the words. Sit down with your little and create a Synonym Garden.
