Super Synonym wall title display poster English KS1

Super Synonym wall title display poster English KS1

I put this up in my classroom, and with 4 different 'boring' words underneath it. Children come up and stick post it notes around the 'boring' word and think of more 'exciting' words to use - which we call 'super synonyms'. Great way to get children excited and engaged in English lessons. I use this in Year 2/ KS1 but no reason it couldn't be used for other age groups. Enjoy!
