Miss Schorr’s Second Graders- Today, we focused on our PBL Vocabulary. Last week, we began a Cognitive Context Dictionary. We began predicting what our vocabulary words might mean. Today, we used our science textbook to find the definition of some of these words. We had to use the features of nonfiction text, such as the glossary, to help us find out what these words mean! We worked with a partner to look up our vocabulary words.

Some students had to use other resources to find the meaning!
