Introduce Vocabulary: "I Can't," Said the Ant (Cameron)

This Introduce Vocabulary: "I Can't," Said the Ant (Cameron) lesson plan also includes:

With both rhyme and a fun storyline, Polly Cameron's story "I Can't," Said the Ant is a useful resource for vocabulary in context. Emerging readers focus on five key words: cooperate, mend, nimble, sling, and trickle. After a brief introduction, they listen for the vocabulary as you read, paying attention to context clues. Five sets of comprehension questions (one for each word) elicit outside connections to familiar concepts, and the linked graphic organizers for differentiated teaching may be useful for all skill levels.
