Harriet Tubman Vocabulary 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.
Every time I use this PowerPoint for vocabulary we find ourselves in lively, student-led discussions.
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. Pacing - I usually split this into 3 mini lessons – 5 words; 5 words; then I use the simple quiz as a review before their paper vocabulary test. I’ve learned to give extra time for discussion.
6. 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.
7. Brain Cues - Students use colored pencils to write prefixes and suffixes.
8. Personal Dictionary- One year I had the kids cut their definitions apart after the unit was completed. They glued the words into a personal grammar dictionary (3-prong folder with lined paper).
9. Quiz Quiz Trade -Now I prefer to glue the words into their Unit Folder and let them carry it with them for the Kagan game of Quiz Quiz Trade (or Quiz Quiz Keep).
10. Charades - When finished with PPT assign one word to each team and have them act it out. The other teams may consult their notes to determine the word
11. Study Guide/Quiz – 4 scaffolding steps to the matching quiz – 1. Complete the interactive PPT quiz. 2. Students complete the paper quiz alone. 3. Students revise quiz by discussing it with a partner. 4. Students use Vocabulary Foldable to check.

3. Underground Railroad
This vocabulary supports, but is not limited to, the wonderful biography on Reading A to Z and RAZKids.com (Level S). It is most suitable for second to sixth grade.
Included in each PPT:
1. Common Core Standards - Each PPT directly addresses thirteen third grade language standards. They are listed with a specific example from the PPT. A lesson plan version of the standards is included.
2. Vocabulary word without syllables marked
3. Vocabulary word with syllables
4. Morphemes with highlighted colors for affixes (Ex. perilous, perilously, perils, imperil etc.)
5. Sentence with picture and word used in context. Two sentences when the word is used in other ways in daily life. (Ex. We work on math mastery facts daily.)
6. Multiple choice, self-checking, interactive quiz. (easy version)
As with all PPTs – it’s probably best to run through it first and check the animations (when to click or not). Verbs usually include tenses that the students must complete before the next click (infinitive, simple present, helping verb, simple past).
To change animations – click “animations” then “animation pane” to re-order or delete animations.
