Lesson Plan

Introduce Vocabulary: Amigo (Baylor)

This Introduce Vocabulary: Amigo (Baylor) lesson plan also includes:

Amigo by Byrd Baylor gives learners a chance to practice with unknown words and context clues. Choose several vocabulary words to focus on as you read the picture book, or use the ones provided here (the book is in English despite the title). Pre-teach the words and have scholars raise their hand when they hear one. Pause at each word, discussing meaning and context. There are questions here to drive thinking deeper and form connections with outside concepts. Although the teaching guide here makes using this book easier, any picture book would work with this strategy.
