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!
As students begin to read independently, they may have questions about what they read. These questions should be encouraged! Have students record their questions about their reading or any unknown words on this graphic organizer.
