Inspired by Maurice Sendak's "Where the Wild Things Are", this 27 page literacy-center activity includes an "I have, Who has?" activity and 80 word cards that match-up to create 40 different synonym pairs. Two different recording sheets are also included: one where students must locate both words, then pair and record; the second, lists one of the words and students must find the match and record the answer. An answer key is also enclosed. Use the cards in a pocket chart, post around the room, distribute a card to each child and have them find their matching partner, or place the cards face down to play a synonym concentration game.
Synonyms have never been so fun!
