What is Another Word For…?

As teachers and educators the earlier we help our students build a rich bank of words to draw upon, the more likely it is that finding that just right word will be simple as a tart…or should that be… easy as pie!

Well taught grammar lessons will hopefully develop vocabulary to help students make their text interesting and less dull, boring or repetitive. A full vocabulary also helps paint a picture in the minds of the reader and improves communication in general.

So we know how important grammar is, but we also know how dreadfully boring those lessons can be and how hard it is to convince kids that doing ‘grammar’ is important for their future.

All of our resources have been created to bring spelling and grammar to life and we are excited to have upgraded a very old boring product into a fully fledged suite of activities to suit a range of learning styles.

Do your kids like to make things? Do they like to play games, paper based and on their favourite screes? Do they like working in groups? Do they like quick tasks? Do you need some good old fashioned worksheets to stick in their books and record their progress?

Well here it is. All of the above, in separate packets or as a bargain bundle.

Games to Play: Flashcards for memory, snap, matching, sorting, Fish etc. Bingo with a twist. Caller calls out the synonym or antonym for the words on the Bingo card

Things to Make: bookmarks to add words to and posters to make and display in the class

Task Cards: 5 different kinds of activities for your rotation groups, literacy circles or quick tasks for your early finishers or late starters.

Worksheets: 4 different types of good old fashioned activities to print out and stick in their books or present as ‘evidence of learning’.
