I designed this in a powerpoint format to make it quick and easy to pull up on an ipad, smartboard, or laptop and use with your groups. The format is very simple to decrease distractions as students learn.
Each slideshow contains 8 high frequency words. The word will appear at the top of the slide. Click to spell the word letter by letter. Then, click again to reveal a sentence. Students can then brainstorm new sentences with the vocabulary word.
Objectives are posted at the start of the slideshow. At the end of the slideshow is a printable page with each of the eight vocab words used in the mini-lesson. The font is traceable and students can cut apart and store the word cards for later practice and review. Just in case, the cards are numbered to easily figure out which word went missing.
I hope you and your students will enjoy learning to read, spell, and use new high-frequency words. Be on the lookout for more to come!!
