Interesting Words

For our read aloud of The Lightning Thief, we've been keeping track of characters, settings and interesting words:

We also keep track of these elements in our small group novels and my students are doing such a great job with our books :)

Of course, I'm still providing vocabulary instruction but it's empowering for the students to pick what words they want to add to our anchor chart.  They feel more ownership over the book and that's a wonderful thing!
