Prepare for your class's A Christmas Carol novel study with this engaging vocabulary activity! (It's part of my A Christmas Carol Novel Unit
) Vocabulary squares are a great way to help students take ownership of new story words.
The two vocabulary pages each provide students with the definitions of eight words found in A Christmas Carol, and students must write an original sentence using each word. Then they create a simple illustration of each word's meaning.
My students love this novel vocabulary lesson because they aren't just copying definitions and memorizing them for a quiz; they get to imagine creative contexts for each word and be as silly as they want while actively applying new vocabulary knowledge.
There is also a fill-in-the-blanks vocabulary worksheet, including an answer key, for additional practice.
