Goldilocks and Three Bears was the inspiration for "Just Right Antonyms"... With the porridge being either too hot or too cold, and the chairs too hard or too soft...it seemed to fit perfectly!
This 32 page literacy-center packet includes an "I have, Who has?" activity and 80 word cards that match-up to create 40 different antonym pairs. Two different recording sheets are also included: one has students locating both words, pairing and recording; the second, lists one of the words and students must find the match and record the answer. An answer key is also enclosed. As a bonus, I have also include a 2-page printable version of Goldilocks and the Three Bears and a Goldilock's Returns creative writing brainstorming sheet and story paper.
Use the cards in a pocket chart, post around the room, distribute a card to each child and have them find their matching partner, divide the cards into sets and have groups race to match their pairs before the other teams, or place the cards face down to play an antonym concentration game.
Absolutely perfect for my first graders:) The children really enjoyed the "I have who has" activity that we used to review antonyms before our writer's workshop. They are excited to engage in the activity during workstations next week! thank you...
