Powerful Words Editing Game for Writing

Powerful Words Editing Game for Writing

Need help motivating students to use higher level vocabulary in their writing?

This editing game can be played during or after a writing assignment. As it’s being played, it challenges them to add better vocabulary by looking for more opportunities to improve their wording and gain points.

The game sheets include a verb sheet and an adjective/adverb sheet. The words found at the top of each section on the sheets are common words students use in their writing. The “powerful words”, which are next to the stars, are given as substitutions and are as close in meaning to the original word as possible.
The challenge is for the student to use the words with the most point values in their writing. The game can be played for overall winners or trying to top their last score (personal best).

Game includes:
Instructions
Adjective/Adverb Game Sheet
Verbs (present tense) Game Sheet
Verbs (past tense) Game Sheet

As you can see, I have created a sheet for past verb tenses and a sheet for present verb tenses. I found this to be easier for the students when editing their work. Before the student begins editing, determine which tense they have used in their writing. After determining the tense, simply give the student the correct tense sheet.

There will be, of course, some instances where one of the substitutions may not be able to be used correctly based on the context of the sentence. In that case, the student can choose another “powerful word” choice for their substitute word.

Because the game sheets have a basic look, they can be used easily with older and younger students in grades 3-12.

Perfect for individuals, small groups, whole classrooms, or tutoring.
