Include these antonym match-up cards in your celebration of Dr. Seuss’s birthday! With three levels of words to choose from, you can use these cards with young readers through middle school students. Each card includes the level number in the upper right-hand corner.
Interactive Material: This material includes an interactive version that can be used in teletherapy. The file can be uploaded to Google Slides or opened in PowerPoint and then shared with the student. In order to drag-and-drop the pieces, make sure you are in edit mode (NOT in presentation mode). If you are using PowerPoint, you’ll need to enable editing.
Ways to use the printable cards:
- Lay the eggs and ham cards face up and have the students take turns finding matches. (receptive)
- Put the cards face down and have the students play a memory game to find the pairs. (receptive)
- Place the cards face down in a stack. The students take turns picking a card and naming the antonym for the word on their card. You can use the card’s level number as points earned if you are using more than one level of cards. (expressive)
- Have the students play “Go Fish” with the cards. For example, one student could say, “I have ‘add’. Joe, do you have ‘subtract’?” (expressive)
The printable versions include 18 level 1 antonym pairs, 27 level 2 antonym pairs, 27 level 3 antonym pairs, and blank egg and ham pages for you to customize. They are available in color and black and white versions.
