Description

Our Shades of Meaning in Words lesson plan introduces students to the concept of multiple words having very similar meanings. This lesson improves their writing skills by encouraging them to think about their word choices in writing more carefully. Students are asked to list words in word families from weakest to strongest in order to demonstrate their understanding of this concept.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to distinguish shades of meaning in closely related words through the use of a semantic gradient (referred to as ranking chart and comparative scale).

State Educational Standards: LB.ELA-LITERACY.L.2.5.B

Shades of Meaning classroom procedure

The lesson was perfect for what I needed to introduce this standard. It worked very well on our Zoom call to use certain parts of the lesson. This is not an easy concept for 2nd graders. so I am thankful for the ideas!
