Shades of Meaning Worksheets
Language is full of nuance and diversity, which adds richness and interest to our conversations and our writing. After all, ‘screamed’ is much more interesting than ‘said.’ We have created the worksheets below to help your student develop a broader vocabulary and understand the nuances in language. You can see the details or download the worksheet by clicking on the titles. These are free for you to use in the classroom or at home.
Students practice their word skills by by arranging the word cards from weakest to strongest.
This activity includes pairs of words and a sentence. Students decide which word is the strongest form and write it in the blank in the sentence.
Students write 3 synonyms for each word on the list. They then organize the synonyms from weakest to strongest.
Students fill in the blank in each sentence with a word that has a stronger meaning that the word in parentheses.
