Mrs O Knows


The topic of this story is a child who is preparing for his military father's return from a deployment on his 12th birthday, which just happens to be Valentine's Day, too. Things don't exactly go as planned, but it's a very happy ending for sure!

This short fictional passage uses 8 silly words in place of common words within the text. It's purpose is to engage students and provide practice with using context clues to determine the meaning of each silly word. This resource includes two notes pages on the types of context clues, A Birthday to Remember story, a student recording page, a graphic organizer specific to the silly words passage, and a graphic organizer to use with any passage.

As always, please contact me BEFORE leaving feedback if you have any questions or concerns related to this product. I'm happy to help whenever I can!
