Objective: Students will add as many unfamiliar words as they can to their word walls, including the context clues and context guesses.
“The limits of my language are the limits of my universe.” - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
1. What questions do you have about reassessments? Any reassessments you want to complete this Thursday during AA must have a reassessment application completed by the end of the day (3:05 P.M.) today.
2. Head to your word wall on Classroom. Your goal today is to add as many new, unfamiliar words as you can to your wall today. Plan to complete the first three columns for each word (word, three context sentences when possible, context guess).
3. Pull words from your independent reading or TKaM.
4. SLOW DOWN. This is not a race. Provide quality context clues and put some thought into your context guesses. Good work takes time.
FOLLOW-UP: Have your independent reading material in class for block day. Have context clues and context guesses added for all words on your word wall.
