for grades 2-4
This synonym and antonym game is the right prescription for vocabulary enrichment! Word Pond I introduces a total of 192 words spanning three grade levels. Three sets of 48 color-coded sentence cards - ;Synonyms A, Synonyms B, and Antonyms--provide contexts for inferring the meaning of unfamiliar words. Learn synonyms and antonyms for words such as happy, stop, fast, shout, active, reduce, serious, ignore, and repair. The unique design of the game board divides words into eight clusters of lily pads, helping players focus on a small number of words at a time. Two clusters have second grade words and three clusters each have third and fourth grade words. Tailor the game to players' needs by choosing which grade-specific clusters to play. The goal is to land on a lily pad with the synonym (or antonym) on the sentence card and claim the card. Includes instructions for additional games as well as assessment masters to help measure growing vocabulary. For 2-4 players or teams.
