Using Guide Words
Hook your readers by showing this youtube video about a guide dog: www.youtube.com/watch?v=gYsopskZNp0
Have a discussion about what you just saw:
What did you notice?
What is the dog doing?
Why is the dog wearing that harness?
What would happen if the dog was not there?
optional activity: using a blindfold and have students help each other guide each other from point A to point B.
Just like there was a guide dog in the video and the guide dog helped the man get across the street and over the curb, today we are going to lean about guide words and how we can use them to help use find and locate words in a dictionary.
