I’m very particular about the Tier 2 vocabulary words I teach the children this year – my final research project for my master’s degree is about vocabulary acquisition, development, and teaching. I love when I teach a word like landmark and the children continue to use the word!
We paid particular attention to the sequence of the story and made an adorable story map:
We read some other books that had armadillo’s in them as well and compared/contrasted the setting and characters in each story.
We also did a directed drawing of an armadillo using directions from Jan Brett’s website.
I think they turned out super cute!
