Shared Reading: Returning to the text – Building vocabulary for First Graders (5 of 8)
This revisit to the text focuses on vocabulary—noticing interesting and more specific word choices. Students discuss some of the interesting words the author uses in the book and how they brought more specificity to meaning. With each word discussed, there is reading of the sentence on the page to establish meaning, discussion of the vocabulary word, partner talk about the word, and then rereading the sentence to put the word back into context. Students join in reading the text aloud with the teacher as they choose.
