This 20 page packet includes several activities:
*Directions for an Antonym Concentration game for two or more players
* Matching antonym cards and directions for one player
* Direction for a Flip Flop Antonym game that requires students to draw a card and mark an antonym of the word drawn. The student that gets 4 words in a row wins!
*Independent Wild about Antonym worksheet that practices identifying antonym pairs. An answer key is provided.
*Games answer key
*Antonym poster for display
I am in the process of developing several different literacy centers, including fact and opinion, author's purpose, and homophones, just like this one! Hopefully this antonym center will be a great sample!
After downloading, and a quick perusal, this looks like a very useful center activity. I'm looking forward to having my students put it to use sometime in the next 4 weeks--a difficult time of the school year! Thank you for sharing it at such a great price. :)

Hey Amanda! I loved the Wild About Antonyms activity of yours. I love the poster that says the def. of antonyms with the cute flip flop pic in the bottom right corner. I wanted to use it on my bulletin board for Reading. I was wondering if you would mind sending me the template so that I can make a matching one for synonyms. I would greatly appreciate it!! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks so much! Tina Armstrong
As a general rule I do not send out any files in Word due to the copyright terms of the artistâ€™s designs and clip art that I use. I am sorry! I tell you what I WILL do. I will create the poster and send it your way. I have been meaning to make a synonym packet anyway! :)

I just noticed there are 2 sets of flip flops on the "back" card. Is that intentional? It seems like it should have only the pink ones.
