This twenty-five page resource begins with an alphabetical listing of one hundred eleven vocabulary words taken from the full novel text along with their page number(s).
Next is a series of chapter-by-chapter word lists with definitions that present the targeted vocabulary words in story order and identify their location by page number. Each word list is coupled with companion student worksheets that require interpretive use of a dictionary. These pages are designed to be used BEFORE reading so that students will have knowledge of the words when they encounter them again in story context.
Further activities include word usage, word analysis, and a study of FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE lifted from the story. These handouts may be assigned BEFORE or DURING the reading process.
Full answer keys are included.
This material aligns with CCSS ELA RL 6.4, 7.4, 8.4 L. 6.4, 7.4, 8.4 L. 6.6, 7.6, 8.6
