Product Description

The following vocabulary words are from the essay, "The Man in the Water," written by Roger Rosenblatt in January of 1982 in honor of the then unknown Arland D. Williams, Jr., who died helping other survivors of Air Florida Flight 90 to be rescued. The hidden message in the word search is, "His name was Arland Williams."

PITTED - Placed in competition

IMPLACABLE - Not affected by attempts at change; relentless

FLAILING - Waving wildly

EXTRAVAGANT - Showy; excessive

ABIDING - Continuing; lasting

ANONYMITY - The state of being unknown or unidentified

I have at least four products available for this literature that rely on the same combination of words and definitions:

1) A word search using just the words themselves as clues. Note that the definitions won’t be found anywhere on this product, itself.

2) A crossword puzzle with definitions as clues + a word bank.

3) A second (and different) word search using the words' definitions as clues from which students can locate the corresponding words.

4) A second (and different) crossword puzzle with definitions, but no word bank.

Check the product title and thumbnails to make sure you're purchasing the one you want, but please consider the following: Perhaps the best way to inculcate the words is with all four! Start with #1, the regular word search, and, over some days, move through them consecutively until, perhaps, you use #4, the crossword with no word bank, as a summative assessment measuring both spelling and association? Repetition and varied representations over time can be important to language acquisition. Enjoy! Email me k.davis.preach@gmail.com with questions or suggestions.
