No-Prep Needed – Printable Activities with Antonyms

What are antonyms? Why do we need them? And better yet, why do we need to teach them to first graders? Here’s a quick rundown of the facts on antonyms.

Synonyms are words that have opposite meanings. They are essential in reading and writing because they help to expand vocabulary, improve communication, and make writing more varied and exciting. 

Teaching Antonyms Just Got Easier – Opposites Worksheets for First Grade

These worksheets are perfect for first graders (maybe even second) to practice identifying and using antonyms.

  • Picture It Antonyms: Students are given a visual prompt, then must choose the antonym from a word bank.
  • Antonym Swap:  Students use a word bank to replace a word in a sentence with its antonym using a word bank.
  • Antonym Match –  Students will match antonym pairs using a word bank.
  • Antonym Exit Ticket:  Students will identify an antonym for three words and write them on the lines. We’ve included six exit tickets that are perfect for informal assessments.
