This colorful center is made by Core Chompers. It covers three of the Common Core Standards for Language. This center helps students identify the shades of meaning within synonyms. It comes with a sorting board, two sets of synonym cards, a key, student worksheet, envelope label, and blank cards so that more words can be added to the center. Students sort the synonym cards after reading the words in the context of the sentence on the back of each card. This center engages students in discussion as they work together to sort the cards correctly. Students record the answers on the student page and turn it in so the teacher can check for accuracy and students have accountability.
