{New} Vocabulary Activity: Secret iPod Words!!!




Hey everyone!!  I hope you are enjoying your 3 day weekend (if you are having one!).  I used some of my time off to make this AWESOME activity which I like to call "Secret" iPod Word!  I think you and your students will absolutely love it.

This activity/game focuses on synonyms, antonyms, and rhyming words.

Included: 
•Poster explaining what synonyms, antonyms, and rhyming words are.

•72 cards with a “secret word”, synonym, antonym, and rhyming word.

•9 homework/extra practice pages.



How to play:
Students can be divided into teams or each student can play for himself/herself.  On a board, make 3 columns with the headings, synonym, antonym, and rhyming word.   

The SLP/teacher chooses a card (as seen above)  and starts by reading ONLY the antonym.  The first team/student to raise their hand, gets a chance to guess the “secret word”.  Alternative: Go back and forth between students/teams allowing each a chance to solve a “secret word”. If a team/student is able to guess the “secret word” when given only the antonym, 3 points are earned.  When both the antonym and synonym are given, 2 points are earned.  When all three clues are given, 1 point is earned.  Less clues equals more points!


 Use the included homework pages for students to practice the “new” words they have learned!


Hope you all enjoy this activity!  I had so much fun creating it!  Thanks everyone for the support!!!
