Learning synonyms can be fun with these 5 engaging and entertaining synonym games and activities. Just copy, cut out and you're ready to go. Take a break from the boring paper and pencil assessments with these activities that students are sure to love. These synonym activities get students up and moving. They can be played in group, with a partner or independently.
Included in this set is:
1.)Synonym Flower Power Game- just copy and cut out- this station is fun and easy to manage. Students match petals to the correct flower center to make synonyms. Great for stations, partners or even independent work.
2.)Synonym Task Cards- This is a great independent activity but can also be played with a partner. This is also a great assessment tool for teachers. Place synonym task cards around the room and students walk around and answer the question. Fast, fun and gets students moving.
3.)Synonym I has, Who Has- Great whole group activity that beats a boring worksheet. Each student gets a card. The first person reads his or hers and the other students listen to see who has the synonym that matches the one that was read.
4.)Synonym Memory Game- Played like the tradition memory game. Students place synonym cards fast down and take turns turning over pairs. If they turn over two synonyms they keep the pair, if they don't they turn them back over and play moves to the next person. The person with the most pairs wins. This activity also comes with a paper and pencil worksheet the students complete once they have finished the game. Great for teachers to use to check for understanding and time on task during stations.
5.)Synonym Old Maid- just like the card game. Students get synonym cards, draw a card from each other's hand and try to make a synonym pair. The person left with the "Old Maid" card in the end loses.
