Product Description

Product Description

In Other Words is a clever language builder. The kit contains over 270 double-sided word magnets that stick both ways. Noun, verb and adjective tiles have a common word on one side and a less often used synonym on the other. Kids can make a phrase with one side and then flip the magnets to see their message put a different way!

I bought this for my fifth grade class. I put it in the poetry center hoping it would motivate my students to experiment with words and poetry. It has been a big hit! The students are constantly calling me over to read the poem they wrote with the magnets. I'd really like another set!

I used this poetry kit briefly in my third grade classroom and plan on keeping it around all year in my poetry center. The synonyms are great for expanding kids' vocabulary and they love flipping the words periodically. This kit also gave rise to discussion about connotations and how synonyms might mean the same thing but have a different effect. Great impetus for word work and creative poetry explorations!

Bought this for my daughters at Christmastime. They just LOVE it and so do my husband and I! We will stop by the fridge and make up a silly sentence. Inevitably, one of the kids will come by later on and flip over the words so that, while the sentence is essentially the same, it now sounds entirely different...and most of the time, very funny. The double sided synonyms are MUCH more fun than the single words you find in most magnetic sets. The set also includes "connectors" like AND, OR, THE, SHE, HE, etc. so you really can make full sentences. The only down side is that the set did not come with a container to keep the magnets in. We did not have room to store all the magnets on the fridge (there are a lot of them!) so we keep them in a mug on a counter nearby.

As a mom, I'm always looking for ways to teach my kid without them realizing that they are learning something. These magnets were right up my alley. I love how they have simple words on one side and then you can upgrade to the SAT word on the other. For the first three days we made chain poems, taking turns one line at a time. My kids are 8 and 9. After the third day and fourth poem, well... But at least they look pretty and hip on the fridge.
