Dead Words

I saw a few great posts on Pinterest and blogs to put Dead Words (over used vocabulary) to rest.  We do not celebrate Halloween at my school and I thought this would be a fun October activity.  Here are some ideas that I found:

I created my own image to download  11 documents.  22 tombstones in all.

Here is my bulletin board and my student's creations.  The larger tombstone was from Target.  I hung it up with Velcro...I hope it is still hanging tomorrow!  They had a blast and some were very creative!


  1. I really love your idea about dead words. I tried to download the document, but couldn't. Is there any way you can e-mail me the file?

    Thanks so much,
