Product Description
Vocabulary must be taught in context for students to truly understand the words and build relationships with them, and then in turn use them in writing and speaking. Move away from lists of vocabulary words and looking up definitions, and teach students how to comprehend with this best practice pack!

*****************************************************************************
WHAT’S INCLUDED?

In this Vivid Vocabulary pack, I have provided activities designed on researched best practices for use with popular mentor texts to help you maximize your teaching time. These are the same mentor texts used in UNIT 4 of VOLUME 1 mentor sentences, interactive activities, and Better Than Basal Reading and Writing Activities.

-Roller Coaster by Marla Frazee
-Shortcut by Donald Crews
-Nothing Ever Happens on 90th Street by Roni Schotter
-Henry’s Freedom Box by Ellen Levine
-Our Tree Named Steve by Alan Zweibel
-The Paperboy by Dav Pilkey
-The Rough-Face Girl by Rafe Martin
-Fly Away Home by Eve Bunting
-The Raft by Jim LaMarche
-The Junkyard Wonders by Patricia Polacco

Please look at the preview to see what is included! Every mentor text "set" of activities includes the “What Do You Think?” page for context application and the “Show What You Know” page to formatively assess students. The other activities vary based on the text and the vocabulary words.

There are open-ended activities and ideas provided that can be used with any words, and I encourage you to incorporate past words in with the current words using these formats for frequent repetition.

*****************************************************************************
WHAT ELSE DO I NEED?

There is a Mentor Sentence Unit with all of the same mentor texts featured in this pack. You can also get the Interactive Language Arts Notebook Companion for the mentor sentences!

You’ll also love to use these mentor texts in reading and writing, too! Make sure to get BETTER THAN BASAL: Complete NO PREP Reading & Writing Units for 40 Popular Mentor Texts!
