Building Primary Vocabulary Antonyms Opposites
Opposites- such an easy concept and everyone gets it in kindergarten with little effort? But are you challenging your students? Do you settle with the easy pairs- hot/cold, happy/sad, long/short? Give your students opportunities to think at a higher level on Common Core Standards (CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.K.5.b.)
3 Levels- Challenge Everyone!
This resource provides over 100 pairs of opposites divided into 3 levels.
Most of the time we teach opposites with little thought to the words. Here are lots of examples to increase your students’ vocabulary. Expose your students to words on all 3 lists. However, levels provide instant differentiation. These lists are for everyone involved in your classroom- you, co-teachers, paraprofessionals, the push-in ESOL or Special Needs teachers, parent volunteers, student teachers, etc.
This is primarily a resource of words to use when teaching opposites. Included is a template for students to use when illustrating a pair of opposites.
