This product consists of two worksheets, which present the Vocabulary Reading Skill of Using Multiple Meaning Words. The first worksheet is one page consisting of 7 sentence pairs. Students are directed to read each group of sentences. Then, they are to look up to the word box to search for the one word that can be used in both sentences of a pair. As they find the words that make sense in each of the seven sentence pairs, they write them on the blank lines. Words used are: back, box, by, can, fly, last, may, pet.
The second worksheet is also a page long with a word box at the top, but these sentences have not been arranged in pairs. Once again students use words from a word box to fill in blank lines with the goal of having all 11 sentences make sense. All but one word will be used two times. The sentences are ordered to create a cute story about baseball. Words used are: bat, ground, left, pitch, strike, and team.
