Two unique pre-reading activities to use before reading "The Monkey's Paw" by W. W. Jacobs! Pique students' interest and spark critical thinking at the same time! Activities are aligned with multiple CCSS standards and are very interactive!
I use these activities to get students thinking critically about the story or novel we are reading by having them predict what is coming next - and even add a friendly competition component to the activity.
This product comes with a thorough "How To" guide that guarantees this activity is successful the very first time it is used in your classroom!
