Introduce Vocabulary: One Tiny Turtle (Davies)

This Introduce Vocabulary: One Tiny Turtle (Davies) lesson plan also includes:

The loggerhead turtle is a fascinating species, and budding readers learn all about it in Nicola Davies' account One Tiny Turtle. This informational narrative offers excellent vocabulary in context, and you'll find guidance here to introduce the following words: armor, compass, glimpse, nursery, surface, and vanish. After introducing the new terms, help scholars explore context clues by asking them to raise hands when they hear one in the story. They make outside connections to solidify meanings through the comprehension questions here (excellent) and can synthesize the instructional activity with the linked graphic organizers.
