Synonym vs Antonym

This mini-lesson can help all levels across the board. It shouldn’t take too long to discuss with students. You could simply just tell them: S = SAME, A = OPPOSITE. They could remember it this way.

OR

If you want to make an actual mini-lesson from this topic because there is extra time or your students are really needing the guidance…

  1. Synonyms & Antonyms Worksheets is a website where you can find a PDF to print**
  2. You could create a class game where you write a word on the board. Students can mind map similarities (synonyms) and opposites (antonyms).
  3. To branch off of number 2, you could also simply just write a word, two other words paired with it and ask which is antonym and which is synonym. For example:

Word: RUN

Two words: SLEEP ; JOG

SLEEP would be the antonym and JOG would be a synonym.

Some sample words to try: FAST, CLEAN, QUIET, SCARED, SICK, PRETTY, UGLY, etc.

**I could not upload specific PDFs from this website due to copyright and terms of use issues, so please browse around and find one appropriate for your class.

Stretch a Sentence

Stretch a Sentence

Stretch a sentence is as great way to expand on those very boring, simple sentences that need more details. Great for Level 1 and Level 2-1 especially (could be used for upper levels as well).
