I certainly was not the first to come up with this wonderful idea, but have enjoyed implementing this activity in my classroom and hope you will, too!
With this activity you will be able to have your students create a fun art project as well as a common core aligned activity practicing identifying and finding synonyms. These "Synonym Rolls" are a terrific way to assess students' understanding of synonyms, but also as a way for students to practice using reference materials.
Included in this file you will find the resources and instructions you need to complete this fun and engaging activity with your students. Your students will be able to practice finding synonyms using dictionaries and thesauruses in an authentic application context.
This activity addresses several common core standards for grades 2-4. It also serves as a wonderful art display for your classroom or hallway!
