This is a teaching slide show that includes reading and writing activities in which students are focused on locating, identifying and using synonyms and antonyms.
Students locate and identify synonyms in text. This set includes materials that allow students to practice editing writing using synonyms and a thesaurus. Help your students to think through tricky test questions related to synonyms and antonyms using this resource. Allow them opportunities to practice identifying two synonyms through game play. Finally, read a story with synonyms in its title: Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. Materials are included so that your students can write their own opposite story: My Wonderful, Terrific, Marvelous, Awesome Day.
