Introduce Vocabulary: Countdown to Kindergarten (McGhee)

This Introduce Vocabulary: Countdown to Kindergarten (McGhee) lesson plan also includes:

Budding readers will relate to Allison McGhee's story Countdown to Kindergarten in which a young girl is worried about not being able to tie her shoes once she gets to school. This is a fun way to teach vocabulary in context, although there are only two words outlined here: allow and doomed. Kids raise their hands when they hear the words, which have been pre-taught. Prompt connections with other concepts using given comprehension questions for each term and the vocabulary graphic organizers are an excellent option for visual learners.
