How I Spent My Summer Vacation Vocabulary PowerPoint
This is a 4 day PowerPoint I created to help introduce and review key vocabulary for the story How I Spent My Summer Vacation. Each day has different activities for the students that are fun and engaging. The vocabulary words aligns with the Harcourt reading series for 2nd grade for those that use the Harcourt reading series, but the reading series is not required for this PowerPoint.
Day 1 - Introduces words in context and provides a definition and picture for each word. I would display the word in context and have my students predict what they think the word means on their white boards. After all students made a prediction, we look at the definition of the word with a picture.
Day 2 - Reviews words through having students find examples and non-examples of words and practice filling in a word map.
Day 3 - Reviews words by having students create their own word maps to help them remember the words.
Day 4 - Reviews the words with a fun cooperative learning activity called Match Mine.
I hope your students enjoy this PowerPoint as much as mine did. Check back often for more vocabulary PowerPoints.
