On each PowerPoint, one slide shows the vocabulary word, definition, and sentence. The second slide shows a picture representation of the word and another example sentence.
Although entitled “Word of the Day,” teachers may choose to show one word per week- or five words at a time (for a unit study).
Since my first son is 10 years older than his twin siblings, I started using these vocabulary words with my youngest children before they started first grade. They saw their older brother studying and LOVED playing with the flashcards we made. They are in middle school now and have a solid working knowledge of most of the 200+ words we used. They often refer to the pictures before anything else. (“Mom, remember the flashcard with the really fat cat? What was the word for that?” Answer: Corpulent)
I love vocabulary, but have found that teaching 20 vocabulary words per week is not nearly as effective as teaching one word per day. This is a perfect activity for a bell ringer. Students sit down, pull out the printed graphic organizer (in the form of a Frayer), and begin writing down the information displayed on the PPT.
This product includes the PowerPoint to show each day (Perfect to display as the bell ringer!) and a graphic organizer/ task card/ Frayer for each S.A.T. featured word.
As a bonus, I’ve added the “Adopt a Word Graphic Organizer for Vocabulary.” Students fill in the word, definition, and example sentences for ONE very special word that they will “adopt” all year long (like a flour baby…). My students love this activity and take ownership of their word AND teach it to their friends!
