Synonyms FREEBIE for you today!!
Let’s start with the end result, shall we? Here is my eldest son’s masterpiece!
Alex has been confusing his synonyms, antonyms and homophones and so I thought it was time to get creative and help him out.
Now, remember, this is my munchkin who doesn’t enjoy doing worksheets nor writing; he’s the little fellow who leaves homework till the last minute… probably hoping it will get done on its own?!? Not sure what he’s hoping for, actually….
Anyhow, my aim with this activity was to get him to remember that “Synonyms are words with similar meanings”. It requires no writing, much to his relief!
We borrowed Filip’s desk (so I could take photos of him) and we got started! Here he is matching the words from Set 1 from my Synonyms – Center and Worksheets unit. Alex LOVED it!
After he completed the activity, he worked on the follow-up “worksheet” – here he is cutting the words apart…
… colouring the pictures…
… and then gluing the words next to their synonym…
Today was our “introductory session”, so we didn’t over-stress the Synonym definition. However, come tomorrow, we’ll work on set 2 and, each time he makes a match, I’ll get him to say the definition for me. I’m sure he will remember it by the time we finish the unit!
