Lesson begins on rug
Orientation: Two activities to review vocabulary you’ve learned in Theme 3
Presentation: Activity 1: Word Sort. Explain: when we think about how words
relate to each other, it helps us to learn them. We’re going to sort the words from
the Incredible Stories theme into 3 categories: Movement, Noisy Words and
Descriptions (put up in P/C) “Think aloud” to demonstrate (link to texts): plow
(Raising Dragons), bellowed (The Mysterious Giant of Barletta), colossal
(Dogzilla) disappear (The Garden of Abdul Gasazi)

Highly Structured Practice: Continue sorting, asking for reason and links, try to
draw vocabulary across stories. Point out also nouns, verbs and adjectives. *Some
words have multiple meanings which should be reviewed.

        harvest*                         farewell                        terrifying
       disappear                          gallop*                         colossal
