Superhero Scramble

I was monkeying around with an old game this morning and gave it a fresh new look.




It's a partner game that requires my kiddos to switch back and forth between synonyms and antonyms. They can identify and create them in isolation, but once I ask them to mix it up... it's a mess. I'm hoping this will be a fun way to practice when we get back from Spring Break. 

It's easy to prep and easy to play. All you need is a file folder, a dozen or so red/yellow chips (you know, the ones that are collecting dust in your math manipulative closet) and a set of pawns for each partner. Print off the game boards and recording sheets and you're ready to go!

Best of all, it's FREE! Leave me a little love if it's something you can use!

  1. Ooh, I love this! I always find that kids can do synonyms OR antonyms, but then when I mix them up, they get confused. This would be another great way to practice both together and really reinforce the terms! Thanks SO much for sharing! I am excited to use this in my room!

  4. I can definitely use this - will be great to add to a station over the next few weeks as we're reviewing vocabulary and reading strategies for our state tests! I also like that you used my font! :)

    Thanks for sharing!

  5. Looks great but can't seem to download it at TPT. Perhaps a glitch with the TPT system???
