Our Real-Life Word Connections lesson plan introduces students to the real-life connections between the words they use and people, places, and things. The lesson includes information related to shades of meaning, homophones, multiple-meaning words, actions and dialogue, and emotions and traits. Students are asked to work collaboratively to describe things around their classrooms or schools using the concepts they have just learned. Students are also asked to match given words to their real-life connection and identify how characters likely feel in a number of different scenarios.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify real-life connections between words and their use, and use the correct words when writing.
