Description

Students tend to overuse certain words a lot. My students love French Fry Synonyms, but they still need a lot more practice with synonyms. Students will match synonyms to complete three piece puzzles. This is the perfect activity for students who aren’t quite ready for the more advanced vocabulary of the French Fry Synonyms activity. Also included is a recording sheet, in case you want students to turn in the results of their work.

To prepare this activity, I recommend laminating the puzzle pages first. Cold lamination is my preferred method, as it never peels, even after you cut through it. After laminating, cut the puzzle pieces apart. Give a set to each student, or group of students, to complete. Another trick I’ve learned through the years is to print each set of puzzles on a different color of card stock. This makes returning lost pieces found on the floor to the correct set easier.
