101 slides to help your students use antonyms in describing birds and lizards and flowers and bees and butterflies and squirrels and spiders and many other photos that I personally took while out on a trail. This slideshow progresses from oral participation to independent writing, gradually increasing in complexity as the scaffolding is removed.
Level one: Students choose between two antonyms to fill in a cloze sentence that matches a photo (30 sentences). Simple. Direct. Students raise hands and identify the correct antonym.
Level two: Students use a photo and a pair of antonyms as a prompt, orally sharing their own sentence with the class (9 sentences). Students raise hands and contribute a sentence of their own.
Level three: Students use a photo as a prompt to write at their own sentences with two antonyms (10 sentences). Independent. Students write on their own.
