5 complete sets with different Easter backings (backings different from antonyms center so they won’t get mixed up!) and print color to keep them separate. Designed to be printed out back to back with 5 distinct Easter graphics printing on the reverse side.
**First print pages 1-12.
**Next, place the word sheets face up and facing you in the printer’s paper tray.
**Now, print out pages 13-22 which contain 5 different types of backings (Easter graphics) that will be printed on the reverse side of each sheet. These Easter graphics will keep the games separated.
**Page 23 contains all 5 answer keys.
**Pages 24-28 are five optional Easter themed recording sheets (one to match each activity backing) if you’d like students to write the pairs of synonyms. You can make copies for students to write on or laminate them and ask students to use erasable markers. The larger recording sheets work best for erasable markers.
**Pages 29, 30, and 31 are SMALLER Easter recording sheets in black and white if you would like students to record in pencil.
**Pages 32 and 33 are 4 optional Easter Amazing Synonyms Super Star Awards, 2 in color and 2 in black and white.
**Finally, just cut each word card sheet on the paper cutter into 12 square cards. If you prefer not to print out back to back, you can print out backings separately and glue to plain sides of word cards or use the cards without any backings.
The sets of cards can be used as follows:
Activity 1: Memory/Concentration - 5 separate Easter games with 24 cards in each set. Place those 24 cards (12 pairs) face down in 4 rows of 6. Students play Memory or Concentration, turning over 2 cards at a time and keeping them if they are synonyms. The game is over when all cards are gone. The winner is the student with the most cards. Keep cards that belong together in individual baggies. It will be easy to keep the correct cards together because the backings will print out the same. Ask students to record the words if you’d like.
Simply give individuals or small groups of students the 24 cards in a set, and ask them to match them up as synonyms. Then students use the recording sheets to write the pairs of synonyms.
Activity 3: Play as a “Go Fish” game. Put 2 sets of cards together. Deal 5 cards to each player. A player asks another player, “Do you have a synonym for ‘big’?”, etc. If not, the player would draw a card from the pile. Instead of students holding cards in their hands, you can create a long tent with a sheet of 9 x 12 construction paper, and students can prop up their cards along the tent.
