Synonym Toast?

I've found that putting skills into a game format is a great way to engage students and get them to practice some tricky skills.  Sometimes synonyms can be one of those tricky skills.  Here's a fun and FREE game for your kids that will get them to practice finding synonym pairs.

This game is called "Synonym Toast Crunch".  It's played similar to war.  Each player get's an equal share of "toast" cards face down.  They will also have a stack of "Crunch!" cards next to them ready to use.  On the count of 3 they throw it down between them.  If the two cards make a synonym pair, the 1st student to slap a "Crunch! card on top of the words and yell out "Crunch!" gets to keep the pair. After the 1st round of cards, students will reshuffle the unpaired cards and redistribute them to continue the game.  This continues until all words have been paired up.  The student with the most pairs of synonyms at the end wins!

Even though I know my humor is usually corny or just plain cheesy, the kids think it's funny!  So if you don't mind being silly, you may crown the winner . . . "Captain Crunch!"
