Introduce Vocabulary: My School's a Zoo (Smith)

This Introduce Vocabulary: My School's a Zoo (Smith) lesson plan also includes:

Your classroom may feel like a zoo sometimes, but it's nothing like this! Stu Smith's book My School's a Zoo is an excellent way to introduce some fun vocabulary words in context, and it's available on YouTube in case you don't have it. You'll find an outline to teach four in-text words here: crammed, dreadful, nauseous, and wreaking havoc. Scholars pay attention as you read, raising a hand when they hear one of these words and listening for context clues. Each word has a set of comprehension questions which promote outside connections and solidify word meaning. Check out the graphic organizers for possible homework.
