Product Description

These are 20 words from Chapters 1 & 2 of John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men. The words are as follows:

apprehensive / fearful or uneasy

bastard / a child born out of wedlock

bindle / bedroll carried by a homeless person

brusquely / abruptly and bluntly

cesspool / a filthy or disgusting or corrupt place

contemplate / to consider carefully and at length

dejectedly / in a depressed way

disengage / to loosen or unstick something

embraced / hugged

gingerly / in a careful or cautious way

gravity / seriousness

lumbered / walked or moved with heavy clumsiness

mollified / calmed in temper; appeased

morosely / gloomily; unhappily

periscope / the object on a submarine that allows its people to see the surface

plaintively / pitifully or mournfully

pugnacious / combative by nature

recumbent / lying down (esp. for comfort or rest); reclining

slough / (rhymes with tough) get rid of

stake / a financial share (part) in an enterprise

I have at least four products available for this literature that rely on the same combination of words and definitions:

1) A word search using just the words themselves as clues. Note that the definitions won’t be found anywhere on this product, itself.

2) A crossword puzzle with definitions as clues + a word bank.

3) A second (and different) word search using the words' definitions as clues from which students can locate the corresponding words.

4) A second (and different) crossword puzzle with definitions, but no word bank.

Check the product title and thumbnails to make sure you're purchasing the one you want, but please consider the following: Perhaps the best way to inculcate the words is with all four! Start with #1, the regular word search, and, over some days, move through them consecutively until, perhaps, you use #4, the crossword with no word bank, as a summative assessment measuring both spelling and association? Repetition and varied representations over time can be important to language acquisition. Enjoy! Email me k.davis.preach@gmail.com with questions or suggestions.
