This set of cards consists of 42 double-sided task cards. Students read a sentence containing an underlined word on one side. Students then provide an antonym so that the sentence will mean the opposite on the second flip side. They are a great way for students to acquire and practice metalinguistic tasks as they learn new vocabulary.

Metalinguistic skills are strategies that are applied, either consciously or automatically, to an oral or written linguistic interaction to allow one to think about language. It has been found that reading comprehension and metalinguistic skills are strongly linked (Achugar, Schleppegrell, & Oteíza, 2007).

I used these cards with students from grades 4th through 7th. who benefited from pictures and struggled with vocabulary development. They also can be beneficial for 2nd language learners. They work well for independent or small group work activities since answers are provided. A word list is included for data taking purposes.
