This file contains two PDF documents: a file with 24 full-page vocabulary signs and a file of accompanying quizzes. Vocabulary words are from each chapter of A Long Way from Chicago, by Richard Peck. Each sign displays a word from the novel, a definition written in student-friendly language, and a sentence from the book using the word. The quizzes are short and sweet--students can provide a definition or synonym. (I even allow them to use the word in a sentence--anything that shows they've got it.)
Three words are provided per chapter (with the exception of the final chapter, which has six words provided to allow for a full-length quiz.) Quizzes combine two chapters for a total of six words per quiz. (The final quiz has six words all from the final chapter.)
Display as slides, print and hang as signs, or print 4 to a page and use as vocabulary cards for an interactive notebook!
