Product Description
It is necessary that you have access to the book Skippyjon Jones by Judy Schachner. The vocabulary lesson is conducted either during or directly after the read aloud (your choice.) If you have this book, continue reading the description. This lesson focuses vocabulary words: gigantic, gracias, fiesta, siesta, and ruckus.

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:
--standards taught for kindergarten and first grade
--general lesson format
--lesson plan for vocabulary instruction
--list of general extensions to the lesson
--extension to the lesson: opinion writing related to the vocabulary word 'fiesta'
--Poster with the opinion options for students to chose to write about
--writing paper: One page has a sentence stem "I want to have a fiesta with _______ because _______." The other page has a place for a picture and three lines for writing.
--4 different styles of vocabulary posters for classroom display

This lesson was inspired by the book, Bringing Words to Life: Robust Vocabulary Instruction by Isabel L. Beck, Margaret G. McKeown, and Linda Kucan.
