What are synonyms?
Synonyms are words that mean the same thing or have a very similar meaning.
A simple example of a synonym pair is bad and awful. Other examples that are easy for students to understand are chilly and cold or small and little.
Helping children understand and use synonyms can be a way to expand their vocabulary. This can also improve their writing. In writing, we often tell children to work on their word choice. As teachers we ask them to choose a word that is more descriptive. So maybe a students would say devastated instead of sad.
If your children are a new concept to your children, be sure to start with some hands-on lessons to help them understand the idea.
You might show your children something that is big and brainstorm a list of words that mean the same. Move on to synonyms for little and then maybe hot and cold.
It is a good idea to begin with words you know children will be able to think of synonyms for. Once they have mastered this, add a challenge by giving them more difficult words.
