Synonyms, Antonyms, Oh My!

I love this time of year... the kiddos are familiar with the routine and schedule... they know they expectations... love it... it's also a great time to review some of those earlier language units. I pulled these activities out this week and the kids have loved them (so have the substitutes... I had a horrible head cold).

These all look good - we just finished compound words right before Christmas - and right now I can't remember, but I think we do synonyms in the next couple weeks. Sara

I'm in the process of back-tracking and working on the difference between plurals and possessives! I'd love to give them something other than worksheets...I mean handouts :P

All of these units look awesome!

Love your blog! It's filled with helpful activities, and has saved me more than a few times. :) We are beginning our synonyms/antonyms unit, though I know I would love any of your units. Thank you for always sharing the great ideas!

You always have great stuff! You are one of the bloggers I visit most because you don't have all those silly giveaways and constant postings about TPT:)

I'm a title I teacher so I am working on multiple skills with the children at the same time to reinforce classroom instruction as well as supplement it. I would be appreciative of anything you are willing to share!

Thanks so much!!!!!

We're definitely studying synonyms! My kids really need to improve their vocabulary. Synonyms will be used to add more flavor to their writing.

I like to hit synonyms several times, so that we can focus on not overusing words when writing. All your ideas are so cute!

There is still lot need for the students to think in accordance with such circumstantial piece ideas and for the future these will prove to be much better.
