In the Classroom: Vivid Verbs in Expository Literature

After sharing the Using Vivid Verbs video mini-lesson available on my website with your class, invite students to look closely at one of their rough drafts.

Encourage the children to circle the verbs in a few paragraphs and then search for spots where adding vivid verbs could strengthen their writing.

CCSS.ELA—Literacy.CCRA.R.4: Interpret words and phrases as they are used in a text, including determining technical, connotative, and figurative meanings, and analyze how specific word choices shape meaning.
