A Matching Activity for Synonyms!

Synonym Matching Cards

Synonym MatchingA synonym is a word which has the same or nearly the same meaning as another word or other words in a language. Use these Synonym Matching Cards to keep your students engaged in a fun activity that encourages reading and matching. This game is ideal for re-teaching and reinforcement of synonyms. These cards have sixty-two pairs of matching synonyms, which range from second grade words to fourth grade words so you can chose from the set, the cards that you want your students to use. Your advanced students can use the cards with larger and unfamiliar words if they have already mastered the matching of the easier words and are ready to move on to a more challenging match-up.

Some of synonym pairs in this set are: 

Synonym Matching Cardsassist/help, object/thing, begin/start, below/under, close/shut, easy/simple, equal/same, law/rule, silent/quiet, raise/lift, observe/watch, bother/annoy, buy/purchase, combine/mix, connect/join intelligent/smart, lucky/fortunate, calm/peaceful, rescue/save, unusual/strange, artificial/man-made, accomplish/achieve, inspect/examine, necessary/required, amiable/friendly, gallant/brave, annul/cancel, abandon/forsake, melancholy/sad, previous/former, etc.

The illustrations shown are there to help visual learners to make connections between the words and their shared meanings. Encourage students to read each card aloud as they match them (to help the auditory learners).

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
