This lesson plan includes it all! Introduction to the lesson, setting purposes and stating the objective, and the modeling and guided practice of selected vocabulary is all here. Recommended teacher language is easy to follow as it is bolded and italicized!
Enjoy this beautiful story with your students while you encourage word curiosity and develop strategies for determining meanings of new words when reading. I have never met a class who did not love this story and the beautiful words found in it.
