This free "Rikki-tikki-tavi" activity (part of my "Rikki-tikki-tavi" Activities Bundle
) will prepare your middle school students to read this engaging short story by introducing 11 key vocabulary words. This comprehensive story vocabulary list provides a concise, easy-to-understand definition for each word, a sentence example using each word in context, and space for students to apply their understanding by writing their own sentences. I love letting students share the creative sentences they have written - it definitely improves our group understanding of the words!
I hope this free resource will help your middle-schoolers truly "own" their new vocabulary words and increase their comprehension and enjoyment of the "Rikki-tikki-tavi" story!
