Learning new vocabulary words is best done in the context of an engaging story like David Kirk's Miss Spider's Tea Party. New readers (or almost-readers) focus on any of 12 new words: conceal, courtesy, demand, descend, dread, fragile, frail, gloomy, peer, reputation, shriek, and strode. Acquaint them with these words before reading the story and then encourage kids to raise a hand whenever they hear one come up. Are they paying attention to context clues?
