Product Description
I have created five mini activities for you to give to your students as your class reads the novel A Long Way Gone. The key to learning a new concept is to practice it regularly. These mini lessons make sure that students develop a lasting memory of these terms through quick repetition of practice every day for one week. A great common core skill!

Day One: Students will learn the words, reword them, and practice with easy words.

Day Two: Students fill in the empty blanks in a chart that contains denotation, as well as positive, negative, and neutral connotations of a word.

Day Three: Teacher goes to www.alongwaygone.com and show the video. Students fill in the chart to analyze the connotation of the video and then they look in the book.

Day Four: Rewrite the sentences to get rid of the bad connotations and make the sentence sound more positive.

Day Five: Students look up three words in the text and analyze their meaning.
