Shake up your center activities with The Synonym Search Shaker!
This is a Trop50 juice bottle filled with rice that I dyed ) and nestled inside are 20 word cards. Students shake up the jar to find synonyms to words on their answer sheets. The rice moves around in the jar and the kids try to get the words to peek through, much like these Find-it games that the kids love. Cool right? This would also be great to have in the room for your fast finishers and can even serve as a great way to motivate your reluctant writers. I’m working on one for antonyms and science and I’ll be sure to share those here as well!
Head over to the blog for more info and to download the freebies for everything you’ll need to make 2 of your own, besides the juice and rice – but I bet if you search Pintrest long enough you’ll find some great recipes to use those up in no time!
