Hi Jaykay,

They are uploaded and ready to go.

Please ignore the "preview" as I uploaded the same graphics for all weeks as the system kept crashing when I let it select the graphic (take thumbprints from the file).

Thanks for your patience, and HAVE FUN with the lessons. Kids LOVE them and lots of interaction between students. Use your judgement as there is a lot of scaffolding in the presentations so if your kiddos "get it" you can roll on without bothering with the additional scaffolding.

Thanks again!

Shari

Hi Judy,

Sorry it has taken so long for me to get back to you, I had a family emergency to attend to.

I'm uploading the PREZI's today and since they are all "zipped" files, I will have to charge for each one separately. So, that brings the total to $24.00 for the entire 24 weeks. I will email you the organizer at no cost to make up for the amount I previous stated ($20.00 for the lessons). Does that work for you? I strongly suggest using the organizer, it matches what the students will see when you present the words. I use one organizer (front and back - 4 words) each week.

Let me know ok? Again, I apologize.

Hi Judy,

You do want the Prezi lessons correct, not the power point?

Hi, so sorry for the confusion, yes, you are able to purchase the other 23 lessons. Wasn't sure how to post them on the site.

If you purchase the lessons, I'll also include the organizer and word wall as well.

The price is $20.00 for all 24 lesson links.

Buyer re: Academic Vocabulary Word Wall Cards (high utility)
Shari,
I'm just down the road from you, so I know you're aligned with CA standards. I'm a 6th Grade Language Arts teacher (first year) so I'm struggling with curriculum.
Can you tell me, please: are the words on your cards taken from the Coxhead list?
Marzano? Kate Kinsella? I am having a problem using a workbook for AcVoc because "it may not have been adopted by the district." Are there any OTHER AcVoc lists besides those mentioned above? Is there some way for me to see the whole Coxhead list without having to buy a pricey book? I just want to be sure that these are "THE" AcVoc words so I can go back to the powers that be and say, "These ARE what the District is using." Looking forward to hearing from you.

Thanks for the question. The words are what Kinsella would call "high utility" words or what some district's might consider Tier II words. They have proven to be very effective in helping students understand what is being asked of them and to provide students with academic vocabulary for responses (verbal and written). Additionally, they are for the most part/somewhat aligned with sixth grade curriculum; the majority of our sixth grade team (LA) teaches the words from the digital presentation. I also created an organizer which follows/aligns with the PREZI presentations.

Hope this answers your question. Not sure I understand what "I'm just down the road from you" is in reference to, working for the same district?
