The other day I was looking through an educational resources catalogue and came across an activity using rainbows, and it got me remembering an activity I made years ago when I was student teaching. I called it “Opposite Ends of the Rainbow” and created it to help the kids I was working with practice antonyms. Now, this was way back before PowerPoint and cute fonts, so I hand-drew and colored the rainbows and wrote out the words. It got quite a bit of use for the next decade. When I saw the picture of the rainbows in the teacher catalogue, I decided to go fish the activity out and give it a facelift! Oh man, this is dating me:
Gotta love those marker streaks!!!
So here is the new and improved version! It includes 24 pairs of words split into two sets: a set with easier words and a set with more challenging words. Also included is a recording sheet, a folder cover, answer sheets and teaching instructions page!
You can find it HERE over at my Teachers Pay Teachers store. It is on sale for the next three days!
You can also find it HERE at my Teacher’s Notebook store.
I think I will keep the first version to show my great grandchildren one day. Ha!
