Suggested Activity:

Share mini whiteboards amongst the children in the class.

Call out the word: ‘left’ and ask the children to write on their whiteboards the antonym for ‘left’ (which should be ‘right’)

Give the children 1 point for correct answers or 2 points for correct answer and correct spelling.

Children can record points on their own whiteboards using bullet points.

Repeat with words like ‘up’ ‘smooth’ ‘under’ ‘black’ ‘open’
