NOTE: This resource uses American English and is not editable.

These were designed to be cut into cards and laminated so that students can write their responses with dry-erase pens directly on the cards. A Student Recording Sheet is included so students can keep track of which cards they have completed. These would be great at a Synonym Center or as work for fast finishers.

Alternatively, the pages could be used as worksheets for bell work, extra enrichment, filler, or homework. Just print and cut. These will print out fine in color or in grayscale. Extend the activity by having students choose three of the synonyms to use in sentences on the back of the paper.

Be sure that students know that they do not have to complete the six synonyms in order. Skipping the difficult ones to come back to later is an important solving strategy. Students should also cross off the clouds they have used.
