Product Description

“Two Kinds” is a section of The Joy Luck Club, by Amy Tan, that has been excerpted at times as a short story. This includes 10 words from it. The words are as follows...

Betrayal / Failure to fulfill another’s hopes; An act of disloyalty

Dawdled / Wasted time; Lingered

Discordant / Clashing; Not in harmony

Fiasco / Total failure

Lamented / Said with regret or sorrow

Listlessly / Without energy or interest

Mesmerizing / Spellbinding; Fascinating

Nonchalantly / Without interest or concern; Indifferently

Prodigy / A child of highly unusual talent or genius

Stricken / Heartbroken

I have at least four products available for this literature that rely on the same combination of words and definitions:

1) A word search using just the words themselves as clues. Note that the definitions won’t be found anywhere on this product, itself.

2) A crossword puzzle with definitions as clues + a word bank.

3) A second (and different) word search using the words' definitions as clues from which students can locate the corresponding words.

4) A second (and different) crossword puzzle with definitions, but no word bank.

Check the product title and thumbnails to make sure you're purchasing the one you want, but please consider the following: Perhaps the best way to inculcate the words is with all four! Start with #1, the regular word search, and, over some days, move through them consecutively until, perhaps, you use #4, the crossword with no word bank, as a summative assessment measuring both spelling and association? Repetition and varied representations over time can be important to language acquisition. Enjoy! Email me k.davis.preach@gmail.com with questions or suggestions.
