Banned Words for Narrative Writing

In hopes of making our narratives more exciting to read, the grade five/six teachers created a list of words that were banned from students narrative. There include: big, small, happy, sad, good and bad.

As a class, we created a massive list of synonyms that could be used in narratives instead of those words. I ran this activity as a competition for the best list between mixed ability groups. Each student in the group was given a specific tool they could use to add to their list: a thesaurus, Microsoft Encarta Dictionaries on their netbook, online thesaurus, Microsoft Word thesaurus, and one member writing the list.

And here, my friends, are the wonderful lists created by my wonderful students:


  1. Thanks for sharing those kind of information. It can help many people to know something that would help them to avoid using those things.
