Product Description
This packet is designed to increase knowledge of words and synonyms or alternate words that could be used.

Activity #1

“What’s Another Word for That?” -- This game is similar to “Go Fish” but the students collect groups of 4 instead of 2. Shuffle and deal 6 cards to each player. The remainder of the cards are placed facedown on the table in a draw pile. The first player asks “Does anyone have another word or words for (one of the words in his/her hand)? If the other players have one or more, they are given to the that person. That player asks about another word until no one else has a card. A card is drawn from the draw pile, and the play moves to the left.

When a player collects all 4 cards that have the same meaning, (same color frames), they are placed face up in front of that player.

The game is over when there are no more cards in the draw pile. The player with the most packs of 4 is the winner.


Activity #2

“Which Sentence is More Powerful?” -- Student draws a card. Adult or student reads the two sentences aloud.

Determine the level that you want the student to demonstrate knowledge of the words from the point list below.

1 point Identifies the 2 words in the sentences that are different
1 point States the meaning of the two words
1 point Explains why one of the words seems more powerful

When the cards are gone, or the session ends, the student with the most points is the winner. If using with a single student, determine the goal at the beginning of the activity that the student is attempting to reach. (Number of points).
