Vocabulary Strategy

This week, in  Mrs. Myers's classroom, fourth-grade students have been practicing a vocabulary strategy using context clues to determine the meaning of unfamiliar words in a text. Students learned the rap song, Three Little Pigs, and then dug into the text to find the clues held within the text to find the meaning of their vocabulary words. Students worked in small teams reading and rereading the rap song. They solved the meaning of unfamiliar words and checked each other’s work as they figured out those words.
