Create a Vocabulary Guide
  • Make a column (such as the example on the right side) with the three categories:
    vocabulary - sentence - synonymmeaning/
  • Fill in the new vocabulary you find while reading.
    Also, write down the sentence where the word appears + search for the English meaning or synonyms in your dictionary/reliable internet sites.
  • Leave enough space for additional vocabulary you will encounter during the rest of the book.

Writing your first diary entry (short story)
  • Read the second chapter.
    Remember to continue the character-portraits + vocabulary guide.
