Ready-Made Resources – Printable Activities with Synonyms and Antonyms

What are synonyms and antonyms? Why do we need them? And better yet, why must we teach them to primary schoolers? Here’s a quick rundown of the facts on synonyms.

Synonyms are words that have the same or similar meanings. Antonyms 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. Using synonyms and antonyms also helps avoid repetition and makes writing sound more sophisticated.
