Another fun way to work with words! This printable, 27 page, literacy packet is designed to increase the vocabulary skills of older kids, most suitably for 4th through 7th grades. By using games as the lens through which the children are learning, the object to identify synonyms through small group discussion and the use of a thesaurus is developing both literacy skills together with listening and talking skills. I have used this successfully with my 5th and 6th grade students during guided reading and small group activities. The synonyms are focusing on more advanced vocabulary with the intention of the children adding those words to their repertoire and using them confidently in their writing work.
80 matching synonym cards
3 different games and instruction cards.
