Synonym Word Walls **FREEBIE**

I haven't really been writing due to the beginning of school! The first few weeks are always so stressful being a reading specialist. There are tests to administer and grade and schedules to create! Really looking forward to a successful year! After grading a quick assessment we gave I notice the students need to increase their vocabulary. They all use basic commonly used words when there are much better words out there!!

In my classroom I have a synonym word wall.  I leave it up all year and have the students refer to it when they are writing.  My students always find more words to add and really enjoy adding them to our wall.

This is the word wall I have in my classroom.  Each year I end up adding new words based on what I observe in my classroom.

I created a FREE synonym word wall starter set to encourage everyone to start this in their classroom.  The one I created is an ocean theme.  I plan on elaborating more on the file and include many different themes.  If you are looking for a specific theme please comment below and let me know!
