Instructional Ideas

  • Print the list out on large paper and post these 250 words where all can see
  • Create a handout with the resource that individuals can keep in a binder or notebook
  • When revising writing, have learners circle all uses of the word went and replace them with one of these options
Pros

  • Includes many options for young writers to consider as they compose and revise their own work
Cons

  • This will go onto two pages when you print it, so you may have to print double sided or adapt the document if you plan on making a handout
