This is a fun way to introduce younger children to the concept of opposites. Since rhyming is predictive language, they get a hint about the opposite word. You can just download and play the song, of course, but if you can sing it without the recorded music it will give you an chance to pause and let children think about and fill in the opposites. Whichever way you do it, have fun!

Opposites

CHORUS: Letís sing a song about opposites,

Two things as different as they can be
Letís sing a song about opposites
You can sing along with me

The opposite of good is bad
The opposite of happy is sad
The opposite of hot is cold
The opposite of young is old    (CHORUS)

The opposite of short is tall
The opposite of none is all
The opposite of old is new
The opposite of many is few    (CHORUS)

The opposite of heavy is light
The opposite of day is night
The opposite of open is close
The opposite of yes is no!    (CHORUS)

The opposite of black is white
The opposite of wrong is right
The opposite of water is ice
The opposite of mean is nice    (CHORUS)

The opposite of fast is slow
The opposite of stop is go
The opposite of near is far
The opposite of easy is hard    (CHORUS)
