This is a 32 pdf file, PRINTABLE and ready to use. This directly corresponds with the novel, "The Outsiders".
This product is for two literature based vocabulary lists (18 and 21 words) found in the novel, "The Outsiders" by S. E. Hinton. The product includes a list of the words with its part of speech, page number from the text, definition, and a fill-in-the-blank sentence.
Also, it includes a reinforcement activity for each word. All of the activities are different so students are able to try different strategies to see what works for them. Strategies include, but are not limited to, completing a Frayer model, writing a journal entry, drawing an illustration, finding synonyms, etc. There is a text-based example for each word.
In addition, the packet includes a synonyms worksheet with a key and an assessment with key for each list. The synonyms worksheets asks students to work in groups with their lists to match words with their synonyms. The assessment instructs the teacher to dictate the words, like a spelling test, then the students match them with their definition.
I try to introduce a "Word of the Day" as bell work for each lesson. Then, we are always looking for the words embedded within the text.
Research continues to point to vocabulary development as essential to reading comprehension. By consistently introducing and mastering higher level vocabulary, students' comprehension will increase as a result. Display the words in your classroom. Look for meaningful and relevant opportunities to include this language in your reading and writing. I hope you find this extremely helpful!
