This is a vocabulary activity. Students determine meaning of words by using context clues or they determine the correct word based on the definition provided.
Before reading the short story, “The Landlady”, by Roald Dahl, students worked together to to determine the meaning of these words with context clues.
Sometimes they were given the definition of the word but had to use the word bank to determine if they could pick the right word.
I also provide a definition bank.
This was challenging for on-grade level students, but you can differentiate for advanced students by making them do it on their own.
