It is suggested that each lesson be done separately as a quick mini-lesson, so it will take multiple days to complete. It can be used as a review done in one day. There are several choices of printables to use for children to write a word and its definition. The strategies learned are in a checklist so that students can remember them and check off the strategy that helped them know the definition. More printables without the checklists can be used after they have mastered finding definitions.
