This is a lesson plan template for Tier 2 Vocabulary Words. The sequence of activities is based on the book Bringing Words to Life. I have also included an example of how to fill out the template using a vocabulary word from First Day Jitters.
Teachers unfamiliar with the book or what this type of vocabulary lesson looks like in the classroom can visit my blog at growingthirdgraders.blogspot.com to see how I use these plans in my classroom.
I have used this strategy for teaching vocabulary for several years. It is student centered, engaging, and it WORKS!
