Learn how to apply visual and meaning cues to reading unknown words. Readers will explore what to do when they come to a word they do not know as they watch the teacher model the use of these cues and then participate in guided and independent practice. In the guided practice, young readers get to be on the look out for the teacher to make mistakes! Various books with good illustrations are recommended for this activity.
Use this wrap-up lesson for a volleyball unit. The class has been taught and has practiced the skills of passing, setting, spiking, and serving. Now it's time to bring it all together. The lesson has very good cues for each of the basic skills. What I really like are the two games that are played to bring these skills together: a serving game, and a king of the hill game.
Three basketball activities can be found in this resource. One is a basic shooting drill. Use the cues BEEF: balance, elbows, eyes, follow-through. The second drill is for practicing lay-ups. Use the cue: elbow and knee on a string. The last activity is to play a game of bump. It's what fun!!
The Vocabulary Word template provided with this scripted plan helps readers create a visual representation of the word under study. Using mind mapping, class members explore definitions, synonyms, antonyms, word origin, and sentence context. Adding visual cues and symbols (available through the software), enriches understanding and promotes retention. The resource requires the Inspiration Software application published by Inspiration Software, Inc.
The basic skills of throwing and catching a football are the focus of this lesson. The teaching cues for throwing are: fingers on the laces, eye on the target, step with opposite foot, pull arm back and thrust forward releasing the ball. The cues for catching are: make a triangle with your hands, watch the ball all the way until it hits your hands. There are a few drills to have the class practice these skills before playing a fun football passing game.
Use picture cues as a tool in order to create meaning along with text. With a wordless comic, young illustrators discuss the main idea and character traits, and independently write a summary for a page of a wordless comic. This strategy has application to both literature and informational text.
Feet to the ball, belly button to the target, flat platform. These are the three main cues for making a good forearm pass in volleyball.

Students, using their foreign language of study, role-play as two people meeting for the first time. They use courtesy expressions and respond to questions and prompts with correct intonation, pronunciation, and inflection. Students exchange information without using written cues.
