In the lesson plan, Learning New Vocabulary children are introduced to early strategies such as rereading and looking at pictures, to determine word meanings. Geared towards kindergarten and first grade EL learners, this EL support lesson introduces early readers to the words "tricky," "reread," "drawing," and "unknown," to help determine the definition of new words. Building vocabulary is crucial to reading comprehension and critical to becoming fluent readers. A robust vocabulary builds strong-language skills that helps with communication!
Students will be able to define vocabulary words.
Students will be able to define unknown words in sentence level context using a picture dictionary for support.
