RL.4.4 Words and Phrases



This RL.4.4 Words and Phrases unit is packed full of standards-based lesson plans, professionally Lexiled passages, and activities to use while you are teaching the standard RL.4.4. If you are not teaching Common Core, then the unit is still valuable to use when teaching 4th grade students to use context clues to find the meaning of unknown words and phrases, as well as figurative language.

*There is now a digital component included in this resource. The passages and graphic organizers are now created in Google Slides. You can get access to the digital versions on page 5 of the PDF. (The lesson plans, small group activities, and assessments are not digitally converted at this time.)*
