One Word Analogies, This unit contains classic analogies worksheets in which students must choose the pair of words that best express a relationship similar to that expressed in the original pair. Note that low beginning analogies have been created so that one word is static. This is not true for all other levels as both words are dynamic in them. More Classic Word Pair Analogies, This unit contains classic analogies worksheets in which students must choose the pair of words that best express a relationship similar to that expressed in the original pair. Note that these worksheets are to be used as supplementary materials. If this is your first time visiting our website, we recommend that you begin with the Read Theory analogies worksheets located in Unit 2 on this page. Synonyms and Antonyms Worksheets, Synonyms and antonyms are useful to know because they improve reading and writing skills. And since words represent thoughts, it can plausibly be stated that they allow students to understand the world at a deeper, richer level. It is important to remember that synonyms are not words that have the same meaning, but rather, words that have similar meanings. This means that by learning synonyms, students learn to differentiate between shades of meaning. This enables them to be more precise. In addition, by learning antonyms, students learn the logical opposites of important words, thus enhancing their overall command of language. On the first set of our worksheets below, students must choose the best antonym for the word given.
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.
