Susan Berkowitz’s Free Valentine Hearts Opposites

No matter what grade, no matter whether general education, special ed, or in therapy, we ALL teach vocabulary.  Even Math requires understanding of specific vocabulary.

And  teaching vocabulary means teaching semantic relationships; what words are connected to what other word(s) and how?  We teach synonyms and antonyms to teach about concepts and not concepts, we teach multiple meaning words to teach students to bee flexible in their vocabulary thinking, we teach categories; so that students understand which words go together based on specific criteria.

So, here in time for Valentine’s day - but useful any time - are some broken heart opposites for you to use with your students.
