Today, we are going to read/listen to Chapter 1 of the story and interpret the author’s use of vocabulary.

If you want to listen to Chapter 1, click on the link below:


To read Chapter 1, download the document below:

Now that you’ve heard/read Chapter 1, your task today is to think about the language that the author has used and find out definitions for certain words.


On the word document below, you will see 15 words that are in a table. There is also another table which already has definitions inside of it. Your task is to use either a paper dictionary (if you have one) or use an online one to match up the word to the correct definition.


This can be typed up on the word document or you can write it in your exercise book.
