Lesson Plan

Introduce Vocabulary: Fly Away Home (Bunting)

This Introduce Vocabulary: Fly Away Home (Bunting) lesson plan also includes:

Approach a difficult subject with budding readers through Eve Bunting's story Fly Away Home, a child's perspective on homelessness. Focus on vocabulary in context, going over the terms learners will hear before reading aloud. There are three terms outlined here: delayed, noticeable, and stingy. As you read, pupils listen for these words and notice context clues in the text. They make connections to outside concepts through comprehension questions (unique to each word), and you could consider the graphic organizers as homework.
