What grade do students learn analogies? Common Core states that 4th graders should “Demonstrate understanding of words by relating them to their opposites (antonyms) and to words with similar but not identical meanings (synonyms).” This makes 4th grade a great time for teachers to introduce analogies. Begin by practicing with just synonyms and antonyms.
