DIRECTIONS FOR SEA OF SYNONYMS GAME:
Place the stack of synonym cards in the center of the table on top of the “sea page”, face down. Mix the ocean wave cards in the synonym pile. Give each child a copy of a large fish bowl page. Children take turns drawing a synonym card from the pile. After they name any matching synonym they place the sea creature/card on their fish bowl. Watch out! If you get an “ocean wave” card, you must put some of your sea creatures back in the sea. Whoever has the most sea creatures in their fish bowl at the end of the game wins.

3. Use the Synonym cards as a receptive activity by asking the children to identify the matching synonyms with visual choices. Or, ask the children to expressively name the matching synonym, when they are provided with one “sea creature” card.
