This is a vocabulary organizer that correlates with McGraw Hill's Open Court Unit 3, Week 4 story "The House Baba Built". The vocabulary organizer that I have created gives you the option to complete it while reading the selection by stopping as you encounter each term and creating an original definition using the context clues on the organizer, or you can read the selection and then review the terms the students read in the text and create student original definitions.
Students are also asked to create an original picture that will help the students relate the definition with an image. The organizer could also be given to student pairs and have them complete it together using accountable talk. Then you could lead a class discussion about the words, meanings, and how they are related to the selection. The possibilities are endless!
This organizer is only one of the resources I have created to help your students learn the vocabulary for this story. I have also created a vocabulary review sheet, vocabulary cards that can be displayed in your classroom, and vocabulary skit cards that can be used in a center or small group to help make students' learning concrete! These are included in the lesson plan bundle that I have created that will give you everything you need to teach this story including: spelling, lesson plans, and comprehension activities. If you need resources for this story this is the bundle for you!
