Library Card Pocket thing

Here's an idea someone has posted on their website: they took library card pockets and attached them to a piece of poster board. On each pocket they wrote a common, overused word- said, fast, slow, hot, cold, etc... then inside the pocket are tons of strips and each strip has a word on it that is a better synonym for the overused word.

Here's a link to a picture! http://www.cherylsigmon.com/fun3.asp

Hi BethNav!
I remember posting something about those types of posters and the link that had lots more that teachers might be able to use. I couldn't find that post so I eventually found the website.

I'm not sure if these are the posters you want but try this link:

Also, as I was tracking down those posters, I noticed the free downloads page has lots more materials teachers might be able to use.
