FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “Denotation and Connotation Activity”

by Always Learning
5th - 7th Grade

The Common Core requires a realignment of a reading program as well as additional skills and strategies to better comprehend text.  Activities that teach denotation and connotation will enable students to gain access to author’s techniques, which will in turn improve their reading as well as their writing.  

This mini-lesson and activity defines the two and provides a large group of words for small groups or partners to sort into Neutral, Positive, or Negative groups.  This activity can be done on chart paper or easily adapted to Interwrite boards.  

Please leave your feedback.  I hope it helps you in your classroom!
