In this lesson from ReadWriteThink, students see how fun it can be to play with words through a shared reading experience with the text "Miss Alaineus: A Vocabulary Disaster." Students brainstorm a list of vocabulary terms modeled after the text. Then, based upon that list of terms, students develop concrete ways to illustrate these terms.
