This is the assessment for the vocabulary unit. It asks the students to take the 15 words from the unit and write a poem of their own using all of the words.
This vocabulary unit accompanies Crane's short story "The Snake". Even though this story is only two pages long; it is chock full o' words that the students might not be familiar with. So, I usually have them complete a short vocab unit along with the other work we are completing on Crane. It asks the students to go through the story with a fine tooth comb and find the words you have selected within the story. Write them down in context and then try to determine what parts of speech they are. Students continually struggle with grammar; this is a great assignment because it allows you to highlight and teach aspects of grammar without it having to be the full focus of the lessons.
