In this installment with Debra Crouch, she and her students revisit the text to focus on vocabulary in this shared reading for kindergartners lesson —specifically, describing words. Students discuss numerous describing words in the book.

With each word discussed, Debra reads the sentence on the page to establish meaning, discusses the meaning of the vocabulary word, and then rereads the sentence to put the word back into context. Students join in reading the text aloud with her as they choose.
