Homeschool resources: ESL activity for preschoolers on opposites vocabulary

So after a somewhat successful English club for families, we did another round with opposite words as the theme.

Warm-up game:

This is pretty easy as the kids English levels are very beginners. 

Then we read Sandra Boynton's opposite book to get kids familiar with words that are opposites or any other English book you have around that does something similar.
