This is one of two vocabulary activities I’ve made for the short story “Seventh Grade” by Gary Soto. It is a simple sort using ten vocabulary words and three synonyms per word. I’d love to offer the first vocabulary activity for this story, too; I’m working on finding usable visuals for it that follow TpP’s guidelines. Hands-on vocabulary activities are a great way to introduce and reinforce new words in our classrooms. I hope this simple sort works well for you, whether you use it as is for this particular story or use the activity idea for another story in any grade level!
Thanks for browsing!
