So that you can also do this packet with younger kiddos, I've included a blank kite pattern.
They could list rhyming words, sight words, color words etc. PK students can simply do the craft.
Daily word work can sometimes be a bit tedious for older students.
With that in mind, I designed this “Soaring With Synonyms” packet.
My students really enjoy making a colorful kite, with a list of synonyms for their “bow word”.
On another day, they make the back of their kite with a list of antonyms.
The back of the kite can also be used for a writing prompt, or spring poem.
Completed projects look awesome suspended from the ceiling in our hallway.
Studying synonyms and antonyms not only increases vocabulary, but enhances students’ writing; making it more interesting and vivid, as it gives children a better word base to choose from, so their writing is not redundant and boring, filled with over-used words like “said”, “pretty”, “went” etc.
The packet includes:
Synonym/antonym kite craftivity, with a full-page pattern, as well as a smaller, 2-on-a-page template.
48 kite word cards to play Memory Match & "I Have; Who Has?” games, plus a blank set of kite cards to program with whatever...
Black line mini kite worksheet for more synonym/antonym practice, plus a full-color, completed worksheet to use as a sample.
Synonym and antonym “definition” anchor charts
An alphabetical, word-list poster of 70 words students can choose from to complete their kite.
Background information about synonym/antonym word work.
A list of 290 synonym/antonym pairs.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping “Soaring With Synonyms” will be a fun activity for your students, that truly helps build their vocabulary and improves their writing.
