These cards are a great way for students to acquire and practice metalinguistic tasks as they learn new vocabulary. Metalinguistic skills are strategies that allow one to think about language and retain the information better in the process. Reading comprehension and metalinguistic skills are strongly linked.

This set of consists of 42 double-sided task cards. When cut and folded, the right side is folded under the left to make them double sided. Students read a sentence containing an underlined word on the left side. They then provide an antonym for that word so that the sentence will mean the opposite on the second flip side.

I used these cards with students in grades 4th through 7th grades who benefit from pictures and struggled with vocabulary development. They work well for independent or small group work activities since answers are provided. A word list is included for data taking purposes.

A version with answers blocked is provided in EASEL. Students can be assigned the activity and can use the tools given to them in EASEL to give answers.
