2nd Grade Synonyms and Antonyms Resources

Challenge your students to grow their vocabulary by learning that though some words mean the same thing, they have different inclinations when used. Games keep your students engaged in their lesson while expecting them to use context clues and other previously acquired skills. Lesson plans and worksheets take the guesswork out of planning a day of class. Advanced students may prefer using our third grade synonym and antonym learning resources.

Superior Speech: Resources on Second Grade Synonyms and Antonyms

Second graders continue to form their personal lexicons with synonym and antonym practice. The assortment of tools in the resource library aims to add new hues and tones to students' writing and speech.

A mix of teacher-created worksheets combines challenging games, like word searches and crossword puzzles, with language lessons. Printable word-matching assignments have students select the appropriate synonym or antonym to specific words. A vocabulary builder assignment has students circle the correct synonym from a group of possible answers. These ready-to-go worksheets save time for educators who would otherwise have to develop their own game plan.

For more thorough exercises, a five-star guided lesson, Using Shades of Meaning, teaches kids to spot overused words, such as little and big, by writing them on a tombstone to indicate that they are now “dead words.” Then students are challenged to come up with more lively versions of the dead word. The same lesson has students demonstrate synonyms by acting them out. The Human Dictionary is a cohesive lesson that asks kids what they do when they come across a word they don't understand then gives tips on how to determine unknown meanings by evaluating suffixes and prefixes.

More options, such as online games and a guided lesson complete with five downloadable activities, aid students in bringing color and energy to their vocabulary.
