Always a good thing to have to make essays/stories or even journaling on a scrapbook layout a little more exciting ;) Not an endorsement of ALL words suggested...but may be helpful.

Vocabulary - The Said Web - Brainstorming Interesting Synonyms Grade 3-6 Use this activity to help students explore more exciting synonyms for over-used words. Start by generating a few synonyms with the whole class. Then allow students to work in small (mixed-ability) groups to come up with more words. Connect this activity to the writing process by having students go back over a piece of writing and replacing "said" with more descriptive words.

"Dead" words are overused words in student writing such as good, bad, little and big etc. I blew up a tombstone on 11 x 17 paper and had students write a "dead" word on the tombstone. They then used a thesaurus to find more exciting synonyms that could be used in their writing instead!

Razzle Dazzle Words, Purple Words, Expensive Words, "Said is Dead," etc.We all put up a valiant fight to help our writers push the envelope! I like to use this as a word wall display for students to reference, but first I challenge students to match the exciting synonyms with their "basic, boring" counterpart.
