This power point helps students understand the vocabulary words they will encounter when reading the story, "Boss of the Plains". Not only are the words defined, but most are divided in syllables allowing for discussions about syllabication and decoding words. Many also have synonyms and/or antonyms included. After the word is defined for the students, it is then used in a sentence. The sentence slides also includes a picture or illustration (free domain images). After 11 words are analyzed and practiced, there is a multiple-choice quiz followed by the answers allowing students to self-check their work. I have also included 8 additional slides to help clarify the meaning of some of the tier 3 words used in the story (derby hats, pelts, and so on). Total time of the presentation is approximately 30 minutes depending on your pacing.
I also have inferencing questions for this story on a power point as well.
Please let me know if you find any errors!
