Although this vocabulary-in-context activity is focused on Judith Viorst's book Alexander, Who Use to Be Rich Last Sunday, the strategy can be applied to any book budding learners read with you. First, introduce the three new words you will focus on: absolutely, positively, and rescue. Review the word meanings before reading the story aloud, asking kids to raise their hands when they hear one of these words. There are comprehension questions for each of these words to get scholars making connections to familiar concepts; decide whether you will complete these during, before, or after the reading.
