The Reading Warriors lead the Little Learning Warriors in some reading time, doing what they do best!  The Warriors and their students read their books in small groups, and then created Frayer Models on large poster paper.

The Frayer Model is a strategy that uses a graphic organizer for vocabulary building.  This technique requires students to (1) define the target vocabulary words or concepts, and (2) apply this information by generating examples and non-examples.  This information is placed on a chart that is divided into four sections to provide a visual representation for students.

The students decided upon one vocabulary word from their book, and used this word to fill out the Frayer Model in the categories of “definition”, “use it in a sentence”, “synonyms” and “antonyms”.

Great exercise in vocabulary building, Warriors!
