This Introduce Vocabulary: Dolphin's First Day (Zoehfeld) lesson plan also includes:
Travel out to sea as scholars learn vocabulary in context through Kathleen Zoehfeld's informational book Dolphin's First Day. Go over the new words scholars will hear before reading: approach, coast, expert, feeble, gaze, murky, propel, vast, and vibrate. Kids identify the words as you read them in the text. Use the comprehension questions listed for each of these words to get scholars making connections to familiar concepts. Consider providing the graphic organizers for visual learners.
