Activity Overview


As students continue to read, they'll come across vocabulary that is unfamiliar to them. A great way to engage students with new words is to have them create visual vocabulary boards for The Third Wish. A Frayer Model can help expand on an important and complex word or phrase that is integral to the work being read.

For example, an essential vocabulary word is extricate. Mr. Peters must extricate a swan from a bush after the swan gets tangled in the thorns. It is important for students to be able to distinguish extricate from contrary ideas, like attach or combine.

Other key vocabulary words are: composure, presumptuous, rash, remote, and malicious. Students may also choose their own words for this assignment!
