Activity Overview


Another great way to engage your students is by creating a storyboard that uses vocabulary from "Red Kayak".

In this activity, students demonstrate their understanding of vocabulary words using sentences and corresponding images with the Frayer Model. Students may be provided the vocabulary words, or they can use words that they have discovered through their reading of the text. The sentences and images validate the understanding of the word and the context that it was used in the novel.

This example uses the word reluctantly:

  • Definition: unwilling, disinclined, not wanting to do something

  • Characteristics: "I reluctantly turned my boat up the creek, slowed down some, and kept searching."

  • Examples: carefully, cautiously, hesitantly, warily

  • Non-examples: eagerly, enthusiastically, ready, willing
