Synonyms and Antonyms

Last week, the kids and I learned about synonyms and antonyms during our writing lessons.  We are trying to use them to help our writing.  The kids really enjoyed making these antonym books.  First, we made a list of different antonyms.  Dead and alive was their favorite for some reason.  Then we drafted our sentences, edited them, and then completed our books.  We even added a table of contents and bold important words to help us review our nonfiction conventions.

The kids writing is improving so much.  I'm so proud of all of their hard work!
