If your class is reading Jane Yolen's Letting Swift River Go, explore these vocabulary words in context: faint, quench, remain, and sacred. Before reading the story aloud, acquaint learners with these words briefly. As you read, encourage active listening by challenging kids to raise a hand whenever they hear a vocabulary word. What can they derive from context clues? Each word includes an excellent set of comprehension questions to help scholars connect to outside concepts, and the graphic organizers could be assigned as homework.
