Do you want a fun way to incorporate reading strategies & Valentine's Day fun?
"Goosh" is a fun way to teach making inferences & using context clues while using seasonal/holiday words. This "goosh" PowerPoint presentation contains 7 stories with a nonsense word in each story. Stories can be used daily the week of Valentine's to help students look for clues (surrounding words) to infer the meaning of the nonsense word.
Stories are animated so that sentences appear one at a time. This allows time for the students to think about the context clues and come up with guesses. Guesses are recorded on the "goosh" chart by the teacher or a student, and revisited throughout to the determine if they are valid as more information is shared. This continues until the real word is determined for the nonsense word. (Goosh Chart is available FREE at our TPT store.)
Your students will enjoy being good clue finders and trying to be the first one to figure out the nonsense word! Enjoy!
