Student Vocabulary Review w/ Answer Key (pre-reading activity) that supports The Circuit, by Francisco Jiminez (Abridged Version-appears in most textbooks). Students are provided with essential content vocabulary and must fill in blanks to complete the definitions and examples for these words. Fill-in the blanks require student engagement and the pictures included help with student understanding of these words. While reading & after reading activities include elements of a plot diagram (students provide setting, characters, conflict, plot, & theme(s) of the story). Finally, students return to the text to add Spanish words with their English translations and are given the space to write other Spanish words with English meanings that they may know.
