"Would You Like A Synonym With That" Synonym Word Wall- This display would be a great way to get students to expand their vocabulary by visually seeing the different words they can use or by adding more synonyms to the wall.
Have the students make their writing "more colorful" by using paint strips. Write a boring adjective at the bottom of the paint strip on the most boring color. Give each student a paint strip and they can use a thesaurus or a word wall to think of "more colorful" words for their strip. Put the best word on the brightest part of the strip. Hang all of their strips on the door and they can use those words to help "make their writing colorful!"
