Here's a hands-on, creative way for your students to practice identifying synonyms, antonyms, and homographs in sentences! Your students will complete a 2-page worksheet, and then they will use their answers to create snazzy snow friends. The finished products make a unique bulletin board or fun school hallway display!
The worksheet consists of three parts:
Part 1- Homographs- Students will read 4 sentences and circle the homograph in each sentence. Then they will determine the other meaning of the circled word, and write a sentence that shows that meaning.
Part 2- Antonyms- Students will read 5 sentences that contain an underlined word. They must choose an antonym for the underlined word from the list of four choices. (This is the time of year when I seize every opportunity possible to practice those all-important test taking skills for upcoming spring assessments!)
Part 3- Synonyms- Students will read 5 sentences that contain an underlined word. They must choose a synonym for the underlined word from the list of four choices.
When they finish the worksheet, they can begin the craftivity! They will transfer their answers from their worksheet to create their snow friends' homograph hats, synonym scarves, and antonym mittens.
Student-friendly directions are included so that you can place the directions under your document camera, and students can refer to them as they complete the project. (An answer key is also included.)
