This is FANTASTIC! I used this with my classes today. The different levels were great. Beginner was easy, but the other levels were really a challenge! The best part - my kids were BEGGING me to go to the next level. They want to play this "game" again tomorrow!!

Thank you so much! I'm glad you are happy with this product. I have recently used the leveled synonym cards in my classroom, and I've also found it to be a fun activity for students to compete! :)
