Word analogies are one of the most effective ways to build vocabulary while simultaneously developing critical thinking skills. Unlike vocabulary activities that require students to memorize word definitions, word analogies develop a deep understanding of a word meaning by exploring the relationships between words. When students form logical connections between words, they create a mental network of ideas, which deepens understanding and increases retention. While solving word analogies, students are contextualizing the words as they search for word relationships.

When students work with analogies, they...

•expand and deepen their vocabulary.

•understand the relationships between ideas and words.

•recognize and understand multiple-meaning words.

•think critically and apply logical reasoning.

•learn to decipher word meanings based on context.

•build a network of understanding that improves retention and aids future learning.

When complete, this bundle will include:

This bundle includes everything outlined below for grades 7-10. It is PACKED with materials that will allow you to effectively use word analogies with your students.

There are several versions of the materials included which will allow you to perfectly differentiate to meet the needs of your students.
