Old Yeller: This pack of activities supplements the third grade Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Journeys story, Old Yeller Unit 2 Lesson 7. This activity was created to be taught before any initial instruction on vocabulary for this unit. It is meant to get students thinking on their own. Students attempt to decode unknown words and then use context clues to decide what each word means. Students read sentences and then cut out vocabulary words and match them to the definition in which they feel is the correct meaning of the word based on the context in which it was used. They glue along the top of the word and attach to the definition in order to create a flip effect (flip the word to see its meaning). Also included in this pack is an activity to help students write more meaningful sentences using their vocabulary words.
