Or words that are overused...said...for example...

Do any of you have your kids come up with alternatives to these words and make a bb out of them? Thinking about doing this but not sure if it's something second graders would use. I'm clueless!!!

Dead Words

I call them "dead words." Kids suggest dead words, we write them down, dig a hole outside, and bury them.

Then we come back inside and make a list per day of other words to use for them. I either post these in the classroom or make pages for personal booklet like a mini-thesaurus. Students keep their eyes open for others to add to the lists...usually get these from their reading.
