Where the Red Fern Grows Vocabulary and Figurative Language
The vocabulary portion begins with an alphabetized list of all the words chosen for study along with their page numbers. Next the words are grouped into three sets in book order with definitions and page numbers. These pages can be held strictly for teacher reference and convenience or shared with students as they complete the three Dictionary Digs activities. Two word usage activities completes the word study.
This component also includes two figurative language worksheets. Selected samples of figures of speech (simile, metaphor, onomatopoeia, hyperbole, alliteration, and idiom) used by the author are taken from the text and presented to the student for study as multiple choice questions with 4 possible answers.
