It targets synonyms, antonyms, and rhyming words for students in 1st through 5th grade!!! Please head over to my blog for more pictures, details, and instructions of this activity!!! Hope you all enjoy!!!
Poster explaining what synonyms, antonyms, and rhyming words are.
72 cards with a “secret word”, synonym, antonym, and rhyming word.
9 homework/extra practice pages.
How to play:
Students can be divided into teams or each student can play for himself/herself. On a board, make 3 columns with the headings, synonym, antonym, and rhyming word. The SLP/teacher chooses a card and starts by reading ONLY the antonym. The first team/student to raise their hand, gets a chance to guess the “secret word”. Alternative: Go back and forth between students/teams allowing each a chance to solve a “secret word”. If a team/student is able to guess the “secret word” when given only the antonym, 3 points are earned. When both the antonym and synonym are given, 2 points are earned. When all three clues are given, 1 point is earned. Less clues equals more points! Use the included homework pages for students to practice the “new” words they have learned!
