Title of Lesson: Creating Word Pictures Subject: Reading Vocabulary Strategy: Word Pictures Grade Level: 3rd 1. use graphic organizers and visualization techniques to interpret information (e.g. charts, graphs, diagrams) Student Objective: • Students will be able to identify vocabulary words • Students will be able to determine meaning from vocabulary words • Students will be able to create pictorial representations of vocabulary words • Students will be able to discuss their representations of vocabulary words • Students will be able to analyze and evaluate their and their peers representations of vocabulary words Materials: o Poster boards with vocabulary words wrote on them (8 altogether) o Markers (enough for all students to use) o Crayons (enough for all students to use) o Colored Pencils (enough for all students to use) o Teachers’ models of activity (2) o List of vocabulary words (enough for all students to use) Lesson Procedure Introduction: The teacher will introduce the lesson to the students by going over their vocabulary words with the students and asking them to discuss how they remember what these words mean. The teacher will tell the students that they will use special pictures to help them to remember what those words mean and help them to be able to use them frequently in their daily writing and speaking activities. Lesson Implementation: A. The teacher will split the students up into 8 different groups and set the groups up in different areas of the classroom. The teacher will remind the students the rules about working in groups. The teacher will remind the students that if they demonstrate incorrect behavior while in their groups then they will be removed from their groups and will have to work individually. The teacher will tell the students that they are going to do a fun activity with their vocabulary words called word drawing. The teacher will tell the students that this activity will involve the students drawing pictures within the words to show the meanings of these words. The teacher will ask the students to try and think of examples of what this might look like and how they would do it. The teacher will have some students come up to the board and show how they would do this, using words beside their vocabulary words. Once the students are finished, the teacher will ask the students to explain how the pictures describe what the words mean. B. The teacher will tell the students that they will now see some additional examples that the teacher has created of what they are going to be doing today. The examples that the teacher will present will be using words other than their vocabulary words. The teacher will have two different examples to show the students. The examples will be created on large sheets of poster board to ensure that all the students are able to see them. The first word that teacher will present is the word fire. On each of the letters of this word, the teacher will have drawn flames practically jumping off of the letters and the flames were colored a mixture of yellow, orange and red. The teacher will ask the students to look at the word and determine how they think that the pictures within the word show the words meaning. The teacher will call on a few students to discuss their insights and discuss other ways that they could show the meaning of this word. After allowing the students a few moments to do this, the teacher will present the students the next example, which is the word flag. This word is written in big, block letters on the poster board and the f has been made to look like a flag. The teacher will have the students go through the same procedure that they went through with the word fire. C. The teacher will give each group of students a piece of poster board with one of their vocabulary words written on it. Each group of students will receive a different vocabulary word. The teacher will tell the students that now they will try this activity in their groups. The teacher will tell the students that each one of them will write their vocabulary words on the poster board and create pictures with the letters, like the teacher did with the examples. The teacher will tell the students that they will then discuss them in their groups and then they will be discussed with the entire class. Students will be reminded to use their imaginations and do their own work. The teacher will pass out markers, crayons and colored pencils to each of the groups. The teacher will give the students approximately 20 minutes to complete their picture. While the students are working, the teacher will be monitoring the students at work. D. Once the students are completed with their word pictures, the teacher will first have students show and explain their word pictures of their group maters. The teacher will encourage the students to discuss each others pictures at this time. The teacher will allow about 10 – 15 minutes for this. The teacher will then tell the students that their groups will present and discuss their word pictures with the entire class. Each group will show their poster and each student will show and describe their pictures. The teacher will also encourage discussion among the students at this time. E. After all of the groups have showed their word pictures, the teacher will pass out to each of the students a list of their vocabulary words. The teacher will tell the students that they are each going to make a word picture to go along with each of their vocabulary words and also write an explanation for why their word picture shows the meaning of that word. The teacher will have the students use their own paper for this activity. Once the students are finished, the teacher will collect these for assessment purposes. Conclusion: The teacher will again review the students’ vocabulary words and ask the students how today activity has helped them to determine meaning from their vocabulary words. The teacher will call on each student and have them explain. Assessment: 1. Assessment based on observation of : a. Students work in groups b. Students work individually c. Students presentation and discussion to group d. Students presentation and discussion to class
