This Introduce Vocabulary: Clouds (Bauer) lesson plan also includes:
What type of cloud is that? Explore meteorological vocabulary using Marion Bauer's book, Clouds (although these strategies could be used for any fiction or nonfiction text). Pre-teach the new words before reading the story aloud. Suggested words include: cirrus, cumulus, fog, stratus, and vapor), asking kids to raise their hands when they hear one of these words. There are comprehension questions for each to get scholars making connections to familiar concepts; decide whether you will complete these before, during, or after the reading. Check out the graphic organizers for struggling learners; they could be useful for any level.
