It is necessary that you have access to the books listed below. I have accumulated ALL of them through Scholastic Book Club (good place to check if you're missing one or two!) The vocabulary lesson is conducted either during or directly after the read aloud (your choice.) If you have the books, continue reading the description.
Have you ever read a book aloud to your students and thought they knew a word (or SHOULD know that word), but they didn't? Have you ever read a book to your students and came across a fun, new word, you knew your students could connect to, but a few days after the story had been read, the word was forgotten?
Wonderful Words Vocabulary Instruction incorporates student examples, actions, responses, and more to get them deeply connecting to these new, unknown (Tier 2- explained in this resource) words!
This resource includes (for each lesson):
--standards taught for kindergarten and first grade
--general lesson format
--lesson plan for vocabulary instruction
--list of general extensions to the lessons
--extensions to the lessons
--4 different styles of vocabulary posters for classroom display
--Click on each title for more specifics about each lesson!
