This was a game where they had to walk around the room and match their synonym/antonym. This turned out to be a lot of fun, and it launched several discussions:)
Then it was time to play baseball!! Classroom style, though! I was pleasantly surprised at how much they enjoyed this. I knew they would like it, but I had no idea how much they would L.O.V.E it. I have a pretty competitive group of kids this year, and I'm sure that added to the fun! Below are pictures of them playing.
The girl in the middle holding the paper is the "pitcher." She would call out a word, and I would let the "batter" know if they have to give the synonym or antonym for that word. If they got the word right, they could move to first base and so on. This picture shows three of the kids on base, and one at home plate "batting." They would score a point as each kid made their way around the bases and crossed home plate. If the "batter" missed the word, it was an automatic out. After three outs, we would switch teams and I would assign a new pitcher.
One of the bases:
This is what the pitcher used to call out the words. After they called the word, they had to mark it with a highlighter so it wouldn't be repeated.
This is a picture of their independent work
We had a blast with this review! It was a lot of fun, and you can purchase the pages I used at my TpT store here. Here is a preview page to glance at:
