This 2 for 1 synonym activity set is great for fall with a pumpkin theme, but you can actually use it ALL YEAR because it includes a cute cinnamon roll ('synonym' roll) version for both activities. Both activities help your students build word knowledge and practice using a thesaurus to find synonyms. Both add a fun a seasonal twist with the pumpkin theme. In addition, you can create a bulletin board of student work that will help them see synonyms for commonly overused words. This will not only look great for fall, but it will help your students' writing skills! Here is what's included in this set:
-Pumpkin them synonym finding worksheet set with a teacher list of commonly overused words students use in their writing. The list includes some synonyms to help you get started! A clear example of how to do the activity is included. Some sheets have a word on the top pumpkin, while some leave it blank. Students fill in the pumpkin patch with synonyms.
-The same set of sheets with cinnamon rolls :)
-A set of large color pumpkin templates and smaller pumpkins. You can edit the powerpoint with the large pumpkins to add a word to the large pumpkins. Students write synonyms to go with the large pumpkins. Then you gather the completed pumpkins and make a bulletin board.
-Bulletin board poster with pumpkin theme
-Large and small color cinnamon roll templates (same as the pumpkins)
-Bulletin board poster with cinnamon roll theme
I included a link to KG Fonts so you can download fun FREE fonts for the editable Power Point for the large pumpkin template!
This is a great deal because this activity can be used now, and then you can bring it back out again in the Spring with a whole new twist for review!
