Suggestions for Use
- Keep full size or print smaller for matching games.
- Add more synonyms pairs to the list - and more words of similar meaning for each synonym pair - there are lots more - keep these on the wall and add more as they come across in reading and writing.
- If you have them on the wall - pop a piece of wool or string on one of the sets and children have to place the other end of the string on the matching word.
- Most of these are fairly simple words which are great for listening for phonemes and 'chunking' the associated graphemes within the words.
- Hand a card to each child - they have to then find their matching word partner.
- Play 'I have , who has...' - each child needs 2 cards for this. One child starts off - 'I have 'tired', who has 'sleepy'? - 'tired' child places it on chart , 'sleepy' child answers and places their card on chart and says their other card - ' I have .....' who has etc etc.....
- Each child acts out a synonym - other children pick the card which matches.
- You can make these words smaller size by using the reduction settings on your printer and just printing off black and white copies, these smaller sizes are great for cut and paste activities .
- When not being used on a wall display, place them in labelled boxes (small wash powder boxes or yoghurt containers work well, or hanging pockets for continued 'grab and go' games and writing reference.
