In these videos, I read aloud a set of fiction and informational texts with a very specific intention to lead students to examine vocabulary, book structure, word types, and content.
Compound and Sight Words
In this video, I read a fiction text to demonstrate the way the author creatively uses compound words. I read a second text to enable the students to practice their “sight” words or words they are encouraged to memorize as a whole by sight.
In Other Words
In this video, I use the book “Tess’s Tip Tapping Toes” to introduce to students the idea of alternative or more expressive word choices.
