Product Description
This trio includes a myriad of plans and activities for three of O'Henry's most famous short stories. This packet is full of creative ways to teach the elements of the short story, while celebrating O'Henry's use of exaggeration and surprise endings. Reading comprehension, tier two vocabulary, quizzes, an interactive notebook lesson, cell phone activity and crossword puzzles are just some of the choices in this unique packet. I am also including my Elements of the Short Story packet that can be used for any story. A PPT on the life of O'Henry is included as well.

I have included a link to the Google version of most of these activities for those who like going paperless. I have included a Getting Started with Google Apps/Google Classroom guide for those wanting to try it, but still have the print version to fall back on. This is a great way to show use of technology in your classroom. If you aren't interested in using Google, no worries, everything is printable!
