Have you ever experienced a situation where your child reads a story or passage from start to finish, but is unable to explain what they just read? Does your child struggle to understand the meaning of words within a story, affecting their overall understanding of the text? Research consistently shows that there is a direct correlation between deficits in vocabulary acquisition and low reading comprehension scores. Simply put, Stronger Vocabulary Knowledge = Stronger Comprehension Skills....
Students will improve their reading comprehension and test taking skills by mastering 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade academic vocabulary terms. Students will become confident in their ability to read and understand grade-level words though interactive games.
Students may continue to practice the week's vocabulary words through the Kahoot application code given at the end of each class. An optional homework assignment will be posted to the classroom at the end of each class. Students may complete this and send it back to me to be checked if they so choose.
1 file available upon enrollment1) Paper/Pencil 2) A second device (tablet, phone, etc.) for students to access the Kahoot game. 3) If a second device cannot be accessed, students can go to the Kahoot website in another window on their computer screen. 4) Optional: Printed course materials posted in the classroom before class begins.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I will utilize informal formative assessments based on teacher observation, student participation, and class discussion. These observations will guide me in adjusting the lesson as necessary in order to meet my students' needs. There are no formal assessments for this class.
No live meetings, and maybe some time outside of class.
