Our Vocabulary Strategies lesson plan equips young students with various strategies for both learning and remembering new vocabulary to help them become better readers and writers. Often, students will skip over an unknown word or immediately turn to a dictionary, which may be useful. However, using the strategies from this lesson, the students will more easily learn unknown words and multiple-meaning words as they read stories, books, or other content. During this lesson, students are asked to work collaboratively to identify known and unknown words in a story and make educated guesses about the meaning of some unknown words. Students are also asked to work independently to match unknown words with their meaning based on the strategies discussed in this lesson (context clues, etc.).

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to use a variety of strategies to enhance and learn new vocabulary, and determine the meaning of unknown and multiple-meaning words and phrases.
