Use this interactive vocabulary activity to help your students understand, and be able to use, key vocabulary from Hoot. Students will cut out vocabulary words and glue them in their notebook for every two chapters. Then they will attach the correct definition and sentence with each word. This is a very helpful, interactive way for students to practice the vocabulary, too. Directions and answer key are included.
