These words may be unfamiliar to students:
Activity/Before and After
Have students draw a chart like the one shown and write each of the words they don't know in the word column. In the Before Reading column they should write what they think the word means. Then when they come to the word in the story, they should check to see if the meaning they wrote makes sense. If not, can they figure out a better meaning? Have students write that in the During Reading column. Finally, have students use a dictionary to check their word meanings and complete the chart.
