A fun worksheet to use in the classroom when building vocabulary.

Use this teaching resource in the classroom when building vocabulary.

Students write the word of the day then:

  • write a synonym
  • draw a picture.

Print and laminate the worksheet for students to use repeatedly with a removable marker. Alternatively, provide each student with a black and white version to paste into their workbooks.
