Word play makes reading fun. The 25 lessons in this unit use all sorts of word challenges to excite students into improving their reading, comprehension, and thinking skills.
Synonyms (chef/cook), homonyms (sow/sew), rhyming words (park/lark), flip-flop words (wed/dew), and compound words (bookmark / airplane) are all featured.
Context clues and definitions are presented, but there are no word lists. So, students must come up with the solutions to these creative puzzles on their own.
Write a rhyming word for each old word that matches the meaning. “Old word: Hedge. Meaning: Border. New word?” “Old word: Date. Meaning: Part of a fence. New word?”
