The Decision

Grade schoolers read "The Decision" to practice finding the meaning of unknown words using the context clues provided. There are eight bolded words: options, procrastinated, assignment, determination, perplexed, elective, recommend, and conviction. Each word gets matched to one of the listed definitions. Consider teaching kids the strategy of placing the word's potential definition in the word's space to either eliminate or confirm the option.

Being a first year foreign language teacher came with many trials. However, having Lesson Planet has made my job so much easier :). I can always find a few lessons on any given concept I am introducing to my students. The neatest thing is the agility of use the site provides and the search for lessons by grade. I love that! (Especially since I teach 4th - 8th graders.) I need a variety of lessons that meets my students' needs at their level.
