Engage students using pretend play to bring this unique PowerPoint activity to life! Pace the presentation to allow the student to “blow bubbles” revealing words that are related in a variety of ways! Improve expressive language and vocabulary within this fun activity that targets synonyms, antonym, categories, and part:whole relationships.
This set contains: dog-leash, big-large, scarf-necklace, shell-turtle, hot-cold, cat-pet, illness-medicine, rain-snow, rabbit-carrot, moist-soaked, yellow-sun, energy-fatigue, couch-sofa, juice-cup, present-absent, employer-employee, strong-weak, friendly-unfriendly, cop-police officer, trunk-car, bus-vehicle, cell phone-text, rapid-quick, tablet-app, box-container
Therapy tip: Consider pacing this activity to allow for extension activities beyond the words presented. For example, if the words are “big” and “large” consider generating all of the other synonyms your student can think of (i.e. huge, enormous, gigantic, etc.)
Keywords: word associations. semantic relationships. opposites. synonyms. antonyms. categorization. categories. vocabulary.
