Use this range of opposites worksheets to help teach your preschooler some simple opposite concepts. Teaching your child opposites is a great way to improve your child's vocabulary, as the addition of descriptive words to their communication will greatly improve the level of detail your child can convey - 'soft bunny', 'big teddy' or 'little boy'.
For more suggestions see teaching opposites.
The first range of worksheets are printouts that contain a simple list of opposites. Review the list of opposites with your child to ensure your child is familiar with each word and opposite concept. This is also a great opportunity to discuss the opposites and real life examples around you.
These Opposites Worksheets are slightly more advanced as the opposites are mismatched. As your child becomes familiar with opposites, they will be able to identify and actively match the opposite images by drawing a line between them.
As well as using worksheets to teach opposites, you should always integrate other learning methods that children enjoy such as games and activities.
See our Teaching Opposites page for ways to teach opposites with games, crafts, toys and movement.
The List of Opposites is helpful if you are stuck for opposites ideas, or once your child is familiar with the popular opposites and ready to learn more concepts.
For a teaching opposites lesson without the mess of games and crafts, see our Opposites - Book and Video resources.
