Read Theory Antonyms Worksheets, In these worksheets, students are tested on their ability to identify the antonym, or opposite, of a given word. While it helps to have knowledge of word meanings, this is not completely necessary in most cases. Rather, students can rely on their use of logic and verbal reasoning skills to answer questions correctly. You may find it helpful to view our Verbal Reasoning Techniques below. This information outlines several strategies that will enable you to answer synonyms/antonyms questions with a higher success rate, even on questions in which you are unsure about specific word definitions. Oh hey, and don’t forget: the following are samples taken from our sister site, Read Theory. This is a powerful educational tool created to improve reading comprehension for all ages and ability levels. On this website, students can take quizzes, earn achievements, track their progress, and more. And better still, we’ve implemented a teacher login where teachers can monitor students progress using powerful statistical analysis. Click on the banner to sign up to receive our newsletter.
People often wonder about the effectiveness of analogies. What do they teach? How do they work? Why are they so useful? What makes analogies so effective is their ability to get students to think critically. In order to answer an analogy question correctly, the student has to form a logical relationship, or ”bridge” between two words. They must think about how the words are related. Since words represent particulars (not universals), there is a nearly infinite number of ways they might be related. It is the student’s job to narrow this number, and focus on the most essential relation — the most basic aspect of the word’s function or definition. This page contains analogies worksheets. In these worksheets, students must be able to recognize the relationship between the words in a word pair and to recognize when two word pairs display parallel relationships. To answer an analogy question, you must formulate the relationship between the words in the given word pair and then select the answer containing words related to one another in most nearly the same way. Each question has five answer choices, and 12 questions total.
When we use a hands on material like unifix cubes to help solve problems on a worksheets, it’s not okay. But if the worksheet (or printable) is used to enhance the activity such as counting mats, it’s okay. The worksheet should be an afterthought, not the reason for the manipulative. With that in mind, lets talk about why worksheets should not be in the early childhood setting. A worksheet does not teach, no matter how hard you believe they do, they just don’t. Children, young children especially, need time to explore concepts and manipulate materials in order to learn. A cut and paste worksheet on the life cycle of a butterfly is really just giving them cutting practice, not teaching them about the life cycle. But the simple manipulation of life cycle models or watching the life cycle happen in front of them is much more meaningful and appealing. Hands on learning benefits all learning styles, even those kids who love to write.
A verb is a word that shows action or links a subject to another word in the sentence. A verb asserts something about the subject of the sentence and express actions, events, or states of being. Verbs are one of the most basic parts of speech. Verbs are in every sentence you write. Verbs show action. We currently have verbs worksheets for subtopics: action verbs, irregular verbs, linking verbs, helping verbs, verb tenses, subject-verb agreement, general and precise verbs, to be verbs, phrasal verbs, modal verbs and verb conjugation.

Call us crazy (or just obsessed with English and logic), but we think sentence completions are just plain fun. What’s more, they are a great way to expand your vocabulary and improve your skills in logic. This is because sentence completions, like many of the standardized test style questions on this site (analogies, antonyms, reading comprehension, etc.), are very much like puzzles. You have a picture of what the end product should look like, but you still need to rearrange the pieces until you can realize that picture. Scroll down to view our complete list of sentence completion worksheets appropriate for all ages and ability levels. In the printable sentence completion worksheets below, students must select the best words from a list of 5 answer choices to fill empty blanks in sentences. Some sentences contain a single blank, while others contain two. These worksheets are very effective in improving vocabulary, syntax, and ones understanding of conjunctions as syntactical ”road signs”. Finally, please remember that this is copyrighted work to be used only by teachers in school or at home. Binding, bookmaking, and or collation, reproduction and or duplication on other websites, saving to disks or hard drives, publication on intranets such as Moodle and Blackboard, and or use of our worksheets for commercial gain is strictly prohibited.
There are seven primary types of relationships used in our analogies: function, degree, lack, characteristic, type/kind, part to whole, and definition. Keep in mind that these relationship categories are general; there are many other categories and variations used throughout these worksheets. Also remember that while learning how to solve analogy problems can be very educational and rewarding, it can also be frustrating. Therefore, we strongly recommend you review our Classic Bridge Examples worksheet as well as our Three-Step Method for solving analogies problems (see links below). This will greatly enhance your personal understanding of how analogies work, improve your lesson plan when introducing analogies to students, and likely result in a higher rate of success. The best strategy to use when completing analogies problems is the bridge sentence strategy. Bridge sentences are helpful because they enable the student to instantly recognize the answer pair by plugging it into the bridge sentence formulated from the question pair. If the bridge sentence works with both the question pair and answer pair, then you know you have found the correct answer.
