Students need to learn new words in order to become better readers and writers. It is not enough to just learn how to spell the word and look up the definition. What I am offering is a different approach. Students are introduced to new words with examples. Then they explore the words and conduct different games and activities with them in order to really understand the word being introduced. You will need to cut out the words to place in the sentences. Cut the dominoes horizontally. This is just like regular dominoes, except the students are matching either antonyms or synonyms.
