Product Description
Word sort activity using Russian loan words "borrowed" from Russian.

This activity provides Russian students with an opportunity to build on their background knowledge about the Russian language and culture during the first week of school or with a substitute teacher. This activity could also be used at any time during the year or in an English/Language Arts classroom to develop English vocabulary (because all the words are also used in English) or a Social Studies/History unit on Russia or the former Soviet Union. Separate pages to sort could also be split into two separate lessons.

11 Pages include the following:
1 page of headers,
1 page of words to sort
1 sort answer key
4 pages of actual dictionary definitions of words to sort arranged by category
2 pages of "self-assessment" for students to brainstorm the words before doing the sort
1 skeleton lesson plan outline for a substitute
1 how-to page for the downloader/teacher

Cover page and credits/thank-you not included in page count.

Note on spelling: Many of the words that come from Russian have a variety of spelling options because of the nature of the transliteration from Cyrillic script. I have not included all variations, so you might be familiar with different versions of the words I have chosen here (e.g. borsch, piroshky, and czarina).

Keywords: Russian loan words, English words borrowed from Russian, English words of Russian origin, English words with Russian roots, Substitute plan, Sub plans, Emergency sub plans, First Day Lesson, First Week Lesson, International night, International Club, Russian Club, Maternity Leave Plans, Slavic studies, Russian studies
