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 packet 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.)
This is a paperless version that can be completed on a device. It contains 18 slides.
- Slide 1 provides directions for the homograph slides (slides 2-6). On each slide, students read a sentence. Then, they look at the hats at the bottom of the slide and determine which hat lists a homograph. They drag that hat to the snowman's head. They also write a sentence that uses the homograph in an alternate way that was not showcased in the first sentence.
- Slide 6 provides directions for the antonym slides (slides 8-12). On each slide, students read a sentence that contains an underlined word. They must determine which pair of mittens display an antonym for the underlined word and then drag the mittens to the snowman's stick arms.
- Slide 13 provides directions for the synonym slides (slides 14-18). On each slide, students read a sentence that contains an underlined word. They must determine which scarf displays a synonym for the underlined word and then drag the scarf to the snowman's neck.
