Week 9

## Vocabulary Applications

When a student learns a new word, make sure they apply it later on in the day! Challenge them to make up a sentence that uses new vocabulary in a fun and creative way.
When students use new vocabulary words in sentences, remind them to write sentences that give the reader context for what the word means.

## Inferences Based on Evidence

## Revising, Editing, & Rewriting

A fun way to help a child focus on more detail-oriented stories is by reminding them to write "seed stories" instead of "watermelon stories." For example, instead of writing about a family vacation, they might write about a single day on the vacation.
Remind students to focus on "seed stories" instead of "watermelon stories." For example, instead of writing about the whole trip to Disneyland, zoom in on that moment when you realized you weren't tall enough to ride Space Mountain.
