Cover LOTS of Common Core State Standards with these grammar cards. Put them in a pocket chart or on your whiteboard and read the sentences together as a whole group.

Includes a blank, black and white, apple worksheet, where students describe the inside and outside of an apple; a filled-in apple in color, to use as an example; + an apple-adjective graphic organizer, where students write describing words in the blank apples, and then use the words to write a sentence below.
Run off on red, yellow and green construction paper; laminate and trim the 66 antonym apples to make puzzles. Use them for games too, such as Memory Match or toss them in a basket and have students choose several, to play "I Have; Who Has?" The apples provide 132 words to help build student vocabularies. A blank apple template is also included.
Be sure and check out my list of 290 antonyms + a cover so students can make their own antonym word booklets.
I've also included 80 synonym leaves with 2 blank leaf templates. Run off on green construction paper, laminate and trim. Encourage students to write in synonyms of their own.
Here is a list of common antonyms that your students will probably come across. It's a wonderful way to build vocabulary. Give students a word and have them give you an antonym of that word. You can do 1 a day and have children write it in their vocabulary notebook, or use my Student-made Antonym Dictionary.
