I am proud to introduce my Auntie Nym, (antonym) and her cat Cinnamon (synonym). My students have enjoyed Auntie Nym for years! In fact, I have former students, as adults, who say they will never forget my Auntie Nym.
Included in this packet are 58 pages of fun activities for helping students retain antonyms and synonyms! There are 8 mini-poster stories to introduce Auntie Nym to students, a framed poster of the dear ole' aunt, a coloring page, Auntie Nym and Cinnamon Task Cards with recording sheet and answer key, Cinnamon's Favorite Collection of Hinky Pinkys with recording sheet and answer key, Antonym and Synonym Sorting Cards 1 and Sorting Cards 2, (for differentiation) that also come with recording sheets and answer keys, and Auntie Nym and Cinnamon CHALLENGE Task Cards. The CHALLENGE Task Cards come with handouts for completing each task.
I just know your students will enjoy these activities as much as mine have! Although these cards can be used for any upper elementary, lower middle grades, the Common Core aligned standards are 4th grade ELACC4L5c. and fifth grade ELACC5L5 c.
