Here is a great way for your students to add to their vocabulary!
There are 20 pairs of matching synonyms, each written on a cute broken heart. (10 are on red hearts, 10 on pink hearts.) Students will match together the correct synonyms. (I allow students to use dictionaries or a thesaurus to check any unknown words.)
All the prep that is involved is simply laminating, cutting, and you're good to go! There is an included answer sheet for students to write down the matching pairs so that their work can easily be checked at a later time.
This would work well in a word work center for a Daily 5 classroom, or just anytime you would like your students to start using some more "colorful" words in their writing!
Common core standards aligned!
