Word Walls are an important part of the Common Core classroom. Students see patterns and relationships in words when they are easily accessible in the classroom. When vocabulary is studied in context it becomes relevant to the learner. When prominently displayed in the classroom, the words on the word wall are discussed, referenced, and used in a variety of assessments. Subject specific terminology provides visual clues, connections, and comprehension for students.
This packet contains a 31 page packet including a comprehensive vocabulary list for this piece of literature. I have carefully selected vocabulary that might challenge a ninth grade English student. This list might also apply to a eighth or tenth grader. You will also get mini posters for : Common Core Standards for Word Wall assignments, Learning Target and Essential Question for Word Wall assignments, Word Wall Rules, and the title of the piece of literature for organization of your Word Wall. This packet also contains: a student assignment sheet, assessments and activities for your Word Wall, and pre-formatted terms that can be printed on to construction paper.

How to earn TPT Credits:
"Earn TpT Credits for purchases on TpT. You get one TpT Credit for every $ you spend on TpT. Thing is, you only get the Credits after you Provide Feedback -- both a fair rating and a fair comment -- on the items that you purchase. We will round up for you, too! If you provide fair feedback on a $4.75 item, you will earn 5 credits. Every 100 Credits is worth $5 that you can apply towards future TpT purchases, but there is no need to wait until you have 100 to redeem them. 50 credits is worth $2.50, for example."--TPT Credits Page
