This powerpoint presentation discusses multiple meaning words and how to use a dictionary to identify the correct meaning. The powerpoint was used in a third grade class to teach part of ELA standard RW 1.7. The powerpoint features 12 slides in the Explicit Direct Instruction format. Slides include: learning objective, importance, concept development, skill development, guided practice, and closure. Format of questions match how the skill is tested on the CST. I also have an independent practice page called dictionary skills that I have posted.
Thanks, for looking,
This is currently my sixth year as a classroom teacher. My first three years were spent teaching a self contained 5th grade class. My last three years I have been teaching in a self contained 3rd grade classroom.
