This Introduce Vocabulary: A Picture Book of Helen Keller (Adler) lesson plan also includes:
The story of Helen Keller is a fascinating one for young scholars; use it to practice reading comprehension and new vocabulary as learners listen to you read David Adler's picture book (hint: this strategy can be applied to any book). Pre-teach new words you will focus on: lectured, handicaps, constant, and compassion. Review the word meanings before reading the story aloud, asking kids to raise hands when they hear one of these words. There are comprehension prompts for each of these words to get scholars making connections to familiar ideas; decide whether you will complete these during, before, or after the reading.
