During our 90 minute reading block we have added in a mini-lesson focusing on specific vocabulary words found in one of our books that we also read to focus on other reading strategies. For example, this week we are reading the story Building With Dad. When we first read the story today, we focused on the reading strategy "Main Idea in a Story". Later on in the reading block we went back to the book and focused in on six specific words found in the story and discussed the meaning behind those words. We will refer back to these words throughout the week. Each week, we will get a new set of vocabulary words.
