The words you learn from reading can go with you wherever you go! As students read nonfiction books, have them add the new words they learn — along with their definitions —
to this vocabulary backpack!
When reading nonfiction books, it’s important to understand the meaning of related vocabulary words. In this activity, students identify sentences that include key vocabulary. When they're done they'll hold the key to reading success!
Engage students in reading before they even start! Students prepare for reading a nonfiction text by looking at the pictures in the book and answering a series of questions that get them thinking about what they already know about the topic.
