Our Meaning Through Words and Phrases lesson plan teaches students strategies for finding the meaning of new words in text. During this lesson, students are asked to work collaboratively with a partner to write paragraphs that contain a specific set of words, adding context clues to help the reader understand the meaning of the words. Students are also asked to read a paragraph on their own and use context to determine the meaning of the bolded words, writing down their meaning and how they determined that meaning in a provided chart.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to determine the meaning of general academic and domain-specific words and phrases in a text relevant to a grade 3 topic or subject area.
