Happy tuesday! Here is an activitiy my kids did today with the sub!! They loved it, We are working on CCSS 1.1.5d distinguishing shades of meaning among verbs ect.. I kinda take that as synonyms- sometimes the standards seem so vague!! Any how, each student was given a verb and they had to walk around and find a partner that had a word that meant the same as their word. Then they had to act out their word. When everyone was finished they switched words with someone in the class and did it again. They loved, loved, loved this!!! I have a really active class this year so we have to do lots of moving!! Also, my sister Mary made a synonym game that she is using for litercy centers. It matches the CCSS L.2.4 Determine or clarify the meaning of unknown and multiple-meaning words and phrases.
Here is the Llink for SillySynonyms Game: https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B_rA_RSZDbdOOGZlY2JjM2MtMDM5OC00NTgwLTgwMGEtODRmYjgzYzVjNzZj
