What are synonyms?
Synonyms are words that mean exactly the same or close to the same thing.
An example of a synonym pair is always and forever.
Synonyms are often introduced in second grade although some first grade classrooms will be ready.
When introducing synonyms you might start with words like big and large or tiny and small.
You will continue to work on synonyms as a way to help your students improve their word choice during writing.
In the classroom this is a skill you can quickly review. When you write a model sentence, choose a word and have students name any synonyms they can think of.
