I teach Where the Red Fern Grows in my 7th grade English class. I like to incorporate vocabulary with all my novels, but I don't think they have to dreaded! I created these vocabulary quizzes to include the names of my current students in my classes to add a little fun to the quiz taking -- they LOVE them! Granted, you will have to endure some chattering and laughter as your students read through them, but it is well worth it.
There are four vocabulary quizzes in this bundle that cover about six chapters at a time with about 25 words each. The quizzes are broken into two parts: Part I is matching with a word bank and definitions, Part II is matching with a word bank and the word used in sentence to show the definition. Also, each quiz has 2 points of extra credit as an option. These are words we discuss while reading the novel, but they are not on their vocabulary lists.
I have also included the Answer Keys for each quiz.
All quizzes and keys are in both PDF and Word format so you can change the student names for your own classes.
