Build vocabulary and recognition of synonyms with a set of Synonym task cards.

Expand Vocabulary With Synonym Activities

Synonyms are words that have the same or very similar meanings. They are essential in reading and writing because they help expand students’ vocabulary and improve their language skills. Synonyms are also an excellent way for students to learn about the relationships between words and how to use them to express their ideas and thoughts effectively.

One way to boost your students’ vocabularies is to use gamified learning strategies to get them up, moving, and engaging with the content. This resource download consists of 24 unique synonyms cards for use when playing the game of SCOOT or as an independent practice activity.

Scaffold + Extend Your Synonym Games

Support students who need help understanding the concepts by providing visuals like a synonym anchor chart or a synonyms poster. Students can also practice using their dictionary skills by looking up words they do not know. 

Challenge fast finishers who understand the concepts to use each set of synonyms in a sentence.
