Over at my hive I create sweet things for all of you =D Spring is slowly showing it's face here in Oklahoma, so I wanted to make sure my new activity included some spring-time graphics.
My introductory freebie is "Rain Kids Synonyms : Verb Version". In this activity, there are 54 verb cards of synonym pairs using verbs. See there are many types of synonyms: verb synonyms, noun synonyms, adverb synonyms and adjective synonyms. I liked breaking the synonyms up into categories because it allowed my students to get specific in the way they thought about synonyms. Here are a few screenshots on the activity for you to view before going to download over at my TPT store =D I made this activity to target higher level synonyms for my junior students. I have not yet used it with my elementary students, but I feel some of my upper level kiddos could benefit from this activity. Please download using your own clinical judgment to determine whether this activity is appropriate for your caseload
There are two ways to play. There is a receptive way to play as well as an expressive way to play. Both are explained in the packet. I first introduced the cards to my students as a learning session. Then we played "go-fish" and "memory" versions of the game. Lastly, I sorted the cards and had the students tell me the synonyms of the pairs in a drill type session. Towards the end of the session I had them provide me with two different sentences using the synonym pairs. This could easily be turned into a written activity too.
Watch out for the splash cards! I used these in various ways to go along with the activity!
