Arty Synonym lesson

The girls were reviewing synonyms this week and I spotted a beautiful activity at Small World at Home

Unfortunately all my paint strips are in Rose's cutting box - when I went to retrieve them I was too late, she had already cut them into beautiful little squares : (

Not wanting to miss out on finishing our synonym review with an activity like this I put my thinking hat on and came up with a solution to my problem.


First step - Shading Art (& math & geometry if you are feeling desperate) - measure your paper and divide into 24 equal rectangles. Paint your boxes gradually shading to a lighter colour.

Second - when dry fill in the top box with a word and write the synonyms under.

Simple and didn't involve a trip to the DIY store ; )
