Introduce Vocabulary: I Hate To Be Sick (Bermiss)

This Introduce Vocabulary: I Hate To Be Sick (Bermiss) lesson plan also includes:

No one likes being sick; use Aamir Bermiss' book I Hate To Be Sick as the context for a vocabulary study of illness-related words. Acquaint pupils with this unhealthy vocabulary (dizzy, faint, fever, gag, and sore) before reading aloud, asking them to utilize context clues and listen for each of the words. Five sets of questions (one for each word) prompt scholars to make connections to familiar ideas, and could be done at any point. Don't discount the graphic organizers as just for struggling learners, because they are useful for all budding readers.
