READING LITERATURE ANCHOR 4​

Reading Literature Anchor 4 is focused all on vocabulary and having learning understand the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in the text. The big takeaway from this standard is the importance of pulling words and phrases directly from the text versus teaching them in isolation. This means you will need to find ways of making vocabulary meaningful and authentic as you are working to engage your students in new texts. Third and fourth grade focus mainly on understanding the meaning of words and introducing context clues to support their thinking whereas fifth and sixth grade begin to look at the role figurative language plays within a text and uncovering the meanings of these phrases. 

  • RL.3.4 Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, distinguishing literal from nonliteral language.

  • RL.4.4 Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including those that allude to significant characters found in mythology (e.g., Herculean).

  • RL.5.4 Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including figurative language such as metaphors and similes.
