Use this game to practice synonyms with your students! This activity works well for students with vocabulary goals, as well as students with articulation and fluency carryover goals. This game is recommended for grades 8-10.
This game is played similarly to Spoons. Students try to collect 4 cards that are synonyms and be the first to scoop up an object to earn a point for that round! Once they collect 4 related cards, they reach for one of the objects in the middle. If another player sees someone grab an object, they reach for one too. The student who is the first to grab the objects in the middle, lays down his/her cards and explains the meaning of the words. Each player can be prompted to use the words in sentences. All of the students who grab objects earn a letter for that round and can place a marker on the score sheet for that round. Play continues until a student earns the letters “FAST HANDS” over rounds!
