Homeschooling With American Girl: Happy Birthday, Felicity! Vocabulary Words

We have a list of vocabulary words that we've come up with for each book. Sometimes they are words that the children have never heard before, some are words that they know in a different context, but they are all words that end up being discussed as we read through the books. Feel free to use these, add to these, take some out, or whatever works for your classroom. If you think of any more words that should be added to the list please comment.

Remember, the above lesson is just a suggestion. You do not have to do it in the exact same way that I did. Take the things you love about it and mold it to fit your educational needs! And, as always, if you use any of our lessons in your classroom, or have an idea that I might like, please share with me! I'd love to see what you do. You can leave your message directly in the comments or send an email to Dollywollydoodlebug@gmail.com. Your story could be shared on the blog! 

do ask that you link back to the blog if you share this lesson plan anywhere else, or provide a link if you share any other blog/person's ideas here. I love sharing ideas and brainstorming, but please give credit where credit is due.
