Government Integrated Language Arts Power Point
Who wants to study parts of speech, syllabification and morphemes? WE DO! I wouldn’t have believed it myself if it weren’t for my own students getting excited about these interactive PowerPoint vocabulary lessons.
Two questions after each quote:
"What do you think that means?"
"Do you agree or disagree?"
The way I use this resource:
1. I use Laura Candler’s Vocabulary Foldable (click the picture to follow the link to her site)
2. Students read the word aloud then hold up fingers for syllables before the click.
3. Students must write the word (w/syllables), the part of speech and the definition.
4. Students choose which support to add – illustration, sentence or morphemes. Some do all three! This is an important differentiation for my students with special needs.
5. Discussion – most slides have a famous quote. Depending on interest and questions we may spend more time discussing/debating ideas on some slides.
6. Pacing -These words are part of a three week unit I teach. We learn about ten words a week.
7. Completion for Grade I use a timer during the definition part (1 minute). Then I give class points for how many are complete. Finally, we talk during the sentence portion while my special needs kids catch up. The first week of school I grade it meticulously, to teach the procedure. Later, I walk around with a clip-board and do a quick grade. This lets them keep the finished product.
8. Brain Cues -Students use colored pencils to write prefixes and suffixes.
9. Quiz Quiz Trade Students glue the words into their Unit Folder and carry it with them for the Kagan game of Quiz Quiz Trade (or Quiz Quiz Keep).
10. Charades - When finished with 10 words I assign one word to each team and have them act it out. The other teams may consult their notes to determine the word.
Vocabulary included in the PPT:
11. House of Representatives
15. Judicial Branch
16. Supreme Court
28. bear arms

Included in each PPT:
1. Common Core Standards - Each PPT directly addresses thirteen third grade language standards. They are listed with a specific examples from the PPT.
2. Vocabulary word without syllables marked
3. Vocabulary word with syllables
4. Morphemes with highlighted colors for affixes (enforce, enforceable, unenforceable, enforcement)
5. Sentence with picture and word used in context. Two sentences when the word is used in other ways in daily life. (Ex. He proposed marriage. They proposed a new bill.)
As with all PPTs – it’s probably best to run through it first and check the animations (when to click or not).
To change animations – click “animations” then “animation pane” to re-order or delete animations.
