Winter is definitely upon us, and we’re embracing the season in all its glory by incorporating the most identifiable elements into synonym matching worksheets that are educational, fun and free! Increasing a student’s ability to use and understand synonyms helps to improve their vocabulary knowledge and increase comprehension of the spoken and written word, which makes these activities perfect for Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) and Special Education Teachers alike. These synonym matching activities can be easily incorporated into your school-based therapy session or online therapy session.
