The purpose of this activity packet is to provide students with vocabulary practice and background knowledge before reading The Lady, or the Tiger by Frank R. Stockton. This five-page packet contains a series of pre-reading activities designed for ELL students to use in the mainstream English or ESL classroom. Simplified definitions are included in the packet, as well as a Magic Square review worksheet, and short test. Spelling and parts of speech are also emphasized. Fill-in-the-blank questions contain background information about the story to help prepare students for reading. An answer key is also included.
I decided to create these packets when I saw how much my ELL students struggled while trying to read grade-level texts in their core classes. I hope these activities help your students as much as they have mine!
