Let's Make Synonyms

English usually has more than one word for something. When two words mean almost the same thing we call them synonyms: big, large, giant.

I have a friend who hates the word “moist.” No problem, she can say “damp” instead.If she doesn’t like “damp” either, she can look in a thesaurus to find more synonyms for moist. A thesaurus is a special book that shows us the synonyms and antonyms of words. Some synonyms of moist are: wet, watery, humid, roric.

Roric??!!?? Omg, now I need a dictionary.

1 Write a word you hate in the man’s speech bubble.
2 Find a synonym for the word.
3 Write the synonym in the bee’s speech bubble.
4 Repeat. Continue. Go on and on.

English almost always has another word, a synonym, you can use. This activity helps you fins the synonyms you can use to make your life just a little bit more pleasant.
