I Need My Monster: Intermediate Vocabulary Study (Explicit Instruction)
This is a packed, interactive, explicit instruction unit actively engaging students in the exploration of six tier 2 words designed to be used after reading "I Need My Monster." In my fifth grade classroom, I use these shorter read alouds to introduce more complex topics like theme and comparing across texts, while developing vocabulary background. The kids absolutely love these lessons and our focus words become part of our everyday classroom language. Most lessons only take about 15 minutes and move quickly!
Included in this 55 page set:
