Who doesn't love monsters?

I know that monster stuff is generally more appropriate during Halloween, but I have a few students that want monsters all the time. I decided to give them an extra treat here at the end of the year by using a monster theme to review a few goals. There's nothing wrong with a little additional motivation after all.

The premise behind Monster Synonym and Antonym Review is simple. The student will pull a card out from the pile (I'm using my Pokemon card holders) and provide either a synonym or an antonym. My older students get to write the word on the card to add in some multi-sensory elements. They have to try to "collect" as many cards as they can. The cards can then be put inside a paper bag monster that they create using either the boy or girl monster at the end of the pack.

You could even use these for vocabulary. Grab your copy of the file here.


  1. I just did a monster unit- March is Monster Mayhem month! I had several monster stories and some related materials. This activity will be fun to use if I do it again next year!

    1. That sounds like a really fun theme!

  2. Thanks for the monsters! I like the Monster Mayhem month of March idea too.
