A synonym is a word that has the same or almost the same meaning as another word. For example, a synonym for the word smart is intelligent.
If you or your students want a bit of extra practice working with synonyms, below you will find three free printable synonym worksheets.
Each original worksheet is divided into two sections. In the first section, students are given a scrambled english synonyms list, and are asked to match the synonyms. In the second part, students have to fill in the blanks with synonyms from the word box.
Furthermore, I have provided three separate difficulties: easy, medium, and hard. The easy difficulty is intended for students from 1st to 3rd grade. The medium difficulty level is for students between 4th and 5th grade. Finally the hard difficulty synonym worksheet is composed mostly of SAT words, for an extra challenge.
On the second page of each PDF, you will find the answer key to the synonym worksheet. So don’t look on the second page until you’ve completed the worksheet.
That about sums it up. Simply click on a worksheet to open it in your browser.
