Snowman Synonyms is a snowman building activity to be used in speech therapy or ELA centers. This packet features two levels of difficulty. Students lay out the snowballs on the table. Level 1 snowballs feature drawings and words. Level 2 snowballs contain only the words. Students each use a mat to work to build their snowman. The 3 matching snowballs will contain 3 different shades of meaning terms (ie: clever, funny, hilarious).
Two posters are included to explain synonyms to younger children. Older students can work on understanding the Shades of Meaning and why a writer would pick a certain word. A record sheet is also included to use as homework.
