This packet targets 18 vocabulary words from the story. You can print a copy for each student, or you could use one set for the group. Students will match vocabulary words from the story to the correct synonyms/definitions. Students should be encouraged to use the context clues in the text and pictures.
For expressive language practice, the definition cards can be removed. Students would use the context clues in the story to state a possible synonym or definition. Also, students can create oral or written sentences with the vocabulary words.
