Synonyms are learned in every grade level. As students move up in their grade level, the synonyms become more challenging. The reason for this is because learning synonyms means consistently increasing vocabulary knowledge. In kindergarten, students are learning that big is a synonym of large. While in high school, students are introduced to words like vacuous, which is a synonym of empty.
