Think of synonyms and antonyms as sames and opposites: synonyms are the same, and antonyms are the opposite. Help your child master this concept with Education.com’s materials spotlighting synonyms and antonyms -- we’ve got worksheets, printable workbooks, lesson plans for teachers, and activities to bring the lesson to life. Once your student gets going, synonyms and antonyms will be the opposite of boring!
Having a large vocabulary is key to fluid writing, but understanding when you can substitute some words in place of others in order to convey the same meaning with variety, or understanding the word that conveys the direct opposite of another word, allows students to write with a more professional voice. They can accomplish this with an understanding of synonyms and antonyms.
Synonyms
Deriving from the Greek word synonymon, meaning a word having the same sense as another, a synonym describes a word that in relation to another word, where the meanings are nearly interchangeable. Students may be able to remember this by thinking that synonym and same both start with s. Some examples of synonyms are:
  • big: large
  • hard: difficult
  • safe: secure
  • cheap: inexpensive

When writing, it can be easy to students to find themselves consistently using the same words. This leads to an immature and repetitive writing style. This type of writing would be unacceptable in any type of informational writing.
Antonyms
  • big: small
  • hard: easy
  • safe: dangerous
  • cheap:costly

The antonym is the opposite of the synonym. This refers to a word that, in relation to another word, has the direct opposite or opposing meaning. Students can remember this by considering the anti- sound at the beginning of antonym. Some examples of antonyms are:
Using the resources provided by Education.com above may help your students understand how to identify and use synonyms and antonyms in a way that will enhance their writings.
