The Think Aloud Lesson works on story comprehension, theme, phonics decoding, and vocabulary. I classify a think aloud lesson as you walk through the questions with students, stopping to think and talk about your thought processes to answer the comprehension questions, graphic organizer, and phonics decoding.
Book Summary-Some people collect shells or stones; young Selig collects words. Whenever he hears a new one he likes, he jots it down on a slip of paper and stuffs it into a convenient pocket, a sock, a sleeve, or a hat. When you're a kid, such eccentric behavior doesn't go unnoticed, and soon his classmates have given him a new name, "Wordsworth," and a new word to add to his collection, oddball. Ouch! But with the help of a friendly genie, Selig finds his life's purpose.
