What educators are saying

I tried these with my own children and we all loved it. I will be using it this coming school year. Thank you.
I so enjoy vocabulary/synonyms and my students do too with this great resource! I look forward to using it again this year!


Are you looking for a unique vocabulary game to practice synonyms? This fun and addictive card game is never the same twice!

How To Play Pair Stare (two-player version)

The deck includes 30 cards, with six words on each card.

One card is face up between the players and each player gets a card face up in front of them.

Players must find the one and only synonym on both cards (the center card and their own card)! This is easier said than done.

Game continues on until all cards are gone. Whoever has the most cards at the end wins!


Look at the third thumbnail above. Can you find the one and only synonym between the two cards? View the preview to check your answer!

This is a fun game to solidify the concept of synonyms while practicing vocabulary. Six words are on each card. Find the one and only synonym match on both cards. It's more challenging than you might think!

This game can also be played alone, in small groups, or as a whole class. Over 150 words are included, as well as a scavenger hunt.
