The purpose of this activity packet is to provide students with vocabulary practice and background knowledge before reading Lamb to the Slaughter by Roald Dahl. This five-page packet contains a series of pre-reading strategies and activities designed for ELL students to use in the mainstream English or ESL classroom. Simplified definitions are included, as well as a Magic Squares review worksheet and a short test. Spelling and parts of speech are also emphasized. Cloze questions contain background information about the story to help prepare students for reading. An answer key is also included.
I decided to create these packets when I saw how much my ELL students struggled while trying to read grade-level texts in their core classes. I hope these activities help your students as much as they have mine!
Thanks for looking and please FOLLOW ME for other ELL related lessons, handouts and strategies! -Art to ESL
