This assignment is used before the reading of the short story begins.
The assignment is sized to fit in an Interactive Student Notebook.
Students cut out each word/phrase listed in the chart. Then, in groups or with a partner, they group them based on similarities they agree upon on.
Then they name/title each group they created. From this process they make a prediction on what the story will be about.
It is pretty simple assignment that is fun for students and allows the teacher to introduce some important terms from the story.
