Vocabulary: More Than Anything Else
Here's a vocabulary instructional activity to accompany Marie Bradby and Chris K. Soentpiet's book More Than Anything Else -- based on Booker T. Washington's childhood quest to learn to read. Your readers match the six words in a word bank with their definitions. They then choose words from the bank to fill in the blanks in four sentences. Finally, they write a story about learning something new.
