This is a great activity that I created to use with my students during a Tomie dePaola author study. This can also go perfectly with practicing context clues. Tomie dePaola's Strega Nona books include many Italian words. After reading the book with my students, we create an anchor chart of the Italian words and their definitions. Then the students choose words to create their own mini dictionaries. They think this is SO fun and love reading each others'!
Just print, cut, and staple the pages.
