This product is designed to help children link words together as synonyms and antonyms and expand their vocabulary through discussion of the words and their meanings. For my students, I print and cut out the puzzle pieces for the target words along with one worksheet for each pair. I have my students play a matching game by placing all pieces on the table and mixing them up. The student draws a puzzle piece and then must find its match. We discuss the two words, their meanings, how they are used and any experience the student has with the words. If either of the words can be used in more than one way, we add that into the conversation as well. They complete the worksheet and draw a picture that depicts both words. This gives them a visualization to reinforce their new knowledge. There are endless opportunities to expand their language with this activity! I love to tie as much information into a session as possible to maximize their understanding of the target concepts.
This product includes:
-128 pairs of synonyms and antonyms (256 words total) that range in complexity. These can be used with pre-k all the way into middle school.
-1 worksheet that can be used with each pair
-Endless opportunities for language growth
