Antonym Mix-Up

Teaching students antonyms increases students’ vocabulary. But learning about antonyms has other benefits too. Students use antonyms to think more critically and compare and contrast things in their world.

In the video, Teacher Mike defines antonyms and then reads the directions for the worksheet. Students will read sentences and choose an antonym to correct the sentences.   He carefully reads each sentence and discusses why the sentence is incorrect. For example, one sentence reads:

The octopus lives above the sea.

Teacher Mike explains that an octopus cannot live above the sea of course and to correct the sentence, the student needs to choose the right antonym. The worksheet provides three answer possibilities.  The correct answer is “under”.   When that answer choice is used, the sentence now reads:

The octopus lives under the sea.

The worksheet then provides three more sentences to complete.

This video provides teachers and parents with a great resource to learn about antonyms to use in the classroom for instruction and practice.

Great app!
This app is wonderful for my 7 years old son! :) It focuses on basic reading, writing, and math skills. The reward system is great and consistent!
So engaging
We love how we can focus on math with this app. It is engaging and we love how we are able to adjust and tailor the levels according to our son’s knowledge and skill levels!

Daughter's favorite
Still a top favorite for our 7 year old. She loves earning her stars as she learns to trace letters and numbers. Coloring and the sounds are engaging and are on target for her age group and being Pre K.
Such a great app!
This was a really fun way to get my kids to practice their math. I usually struggle to get them into it and Kids Academy makes it easy.
