Introduce Vocabulary: Matthew's Dream (Lionni)

This Introduce Vocabulary: Matthew's Dream (Lionni) lesson plan also includes:

Explore vocabulary in context with emerging readers using Leo Lionni's whimsical story Matthew's Dream, which you can find on YouTube if you don't have it. Kids expand their word base as you pre-teach the terms (appear, bleak, embrace, emerge, immense, misery, museum, and portrait) before reading the text aloud. Help them utilize context clues by asking them to raise their hands when they hear a target word. There are comprehension questions for each term to encourage kids to make connections to outside concepts, and the graphic organizers are a great way to synthesize these words.
