stole was given paint swatches from a local hardware store. I wanted 10 packets so I made sure and took asked for 10 of whatever color paint swatch I wanted. As teachers, we are all about saving money and what’s better than free?
This was a very tedious project. I picked a word such as “bad” and wrote about 10 synonyms for bad.  I did this for quite a few words.
In hindsight, I would have saved my time by printing chosen words on labels and sticking them on the paint swatch.
I used a pin I saw on Pinterest as inspiration for what words to choose.
The only thing I had to buy was the binder rings to keep them all in place.
I hope to use this for a writing workshop or keep one at a table group for the students to reference!
