Lesson: Vocabulary in Harry Potter

1 Favorites

Lesson Objective

Students will use context clues to determine meanings of new vocabulary words.

Lesson Plan

-I introduce the vocabulary before we read the chapter.  We read the sentence together and use the context and word parts to determine the part of speech.  Then, students independently make a guess on the meaning (again, using context and now part of speech).  We share students predictions and then I give them the correct definition.

I post the words on sentence strips afterwards and leave a few inches of blank paper after each word.  Then, everytime a student reads one of these words or uses it in his or her own writing, we add a tally.
