We're Wild About Synonyms
Why? Well... Late last week, I went absolutely WILD when I saw Nikki's "Where the Wild Things Are" inspired clip art - which I purchased from her ETSY store. And...of course, I couldn't wait to use it!
Since our focus this week in our Imagine It program is Synonyms -I created a 15 page literacy-center activity that includes 80 word cards that match-up to create 40 different synonym pairs, two different styles of recording sheets: 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, and an answer key. I titled the activity: We're Wild About Synonyms.
I haven't yet decided if I will 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 have the students place the cards face down to play a synonym concentration game... but whichever we have time to do ... I am certain that my first graders are going to GO WILD for SYNONYMS! This activity is available now in my TPT store.
