WordSift: Hatchet Lesson

I teach the novel "Hatchet" in my Language Arts 6th grade class.  I can use wordsift to review chapters we read.  I am going to use the example of reviewing Chapter one of the novel.

I can have my students tell me why the words that are big are important to the chapter.

I can also go over vocabulary they should know such as hatchet and mechanical.  I can use the word hatchet in the visual dictionary and also look at the various example sentences that uses it in novel.

This would be a great review because the chapters for the novel are very long and I want to make sure my students understand what they are reading.

  1. It's really interesting that Blogger pasted the Word Sift results as text, not as a picture.
