What a fun way to explore new vocabulary words! Marjorie Priceman's book Hot Air: The (Mostly) True Story of the First Hot-Air Balloon Ride offers plenty of new words for scholars to learn in context: amateur, assembled, demonstration, event, and experiment are the ones described here. After introducing these terms, read the story aloud and encourage active listening by having youngsters raise a hand when they hear one. What do they notice from context clues? Each word features a set of comprehension questions to elicit connections to prior knowledge. Check out the graphic organizers for visual learners, too.
