Antonyms can be tough kids, but they are oh so important! Here is a fun activity to get your little ones engaged and targeting antonyms in different ways.
HOW TO PLAY:
- Place cards face ( as many pairs as are appropriate for your student ) up on a table. Have the student choose a card and find the opposite/matching card.
-Cards are self-checking for accuracy. Each pair of cards
shares the same color and number of dots.
- After the student has accurately matched the pairs of antonyms, the student can complete the included worksheets.
The first 5 worksheets have the student draw a line to match the antonym pairs. The antonyms are represented by the same pictures that were on the cards, only they are in black and white.
- Students can also target their following directions skills by coloring the pairs correctly, according to the directions.
- The next 5 worksheets have students demonstrate some of the opposite concepts by illustrating pictures.
**UPDATED 3/28/15: An antonym flip book was added! This has no colored dots for self checking.Have the student open the cover and read the question. If the student cannot read yet, you can read it to them. Next, have the student flip through the answer pages on the right to find the matching antonym ( answer ) for the question.
