In this download you will find two different synonym/antonym centers for your literacy centers. Please read the description of each center below.
Center #1 – Synonym Match Up
This center contains thirty different word cards. Your students will match each word card with its appropriate match. These cards can be left face up or they can be placed face down to make matching the cards more difficult. Once each pair of cards has been matched, students will record their answers on their answer sheet. Early Finishers can brainstorm an antonym for each pair of synonyms. This can also be recorded on their answer sheets.
Center #2 – Synonym/Antonym Sort
In this center, students will read two different words and determine whether they are synonyms and antonyms. Once they have determined if the card contains synonyms or antonyms, they will place it under the appropriate header. After students have sorted all 30 cards, they will pick 5 different cards to practice writing synonyms and antonyms. Because there are two words on each card, students will end up with 10 different sentences.
