"Monkeys and Bananas" Synonyms is an activity that reviews synonyms. Students look at the word on each banana and matches it to the synonym on the monkey. There are 30 matches. This activity can be used in whole group to review or place in your literacy stations so students can work independently. They can check their answers with the answer key that is provided.
Synonyms include: baby-infant; cease-stay; correct-accurate; cover-conceal; create-invent; frail-weak; funny-comical;
help-support; hurt-injure; hut-shack; idea-thought; inquire-question;
mistake-inaccurate; move-proceed; old-ancient; own-have;
pail-bucket; place-location; put-place; race-hurry; reply-answer;
sad-glum; smash-crash; start-launch; stout-chunky;
strange-unusual; take-grasp; tell-reveal; ugly-horrible; weep-bawl;
My students enjoy activities and it helps me to identify students that still have difficulty with a skill taught. When I presented the activity as a whole group I placed on my magnetic white board. I already placed magnetic dots on the back of each monkey and each banana. Afterwards, this activity went into my literacy stations for students to practice independently.
