If you use the 2014 version of the **CCSS** aligned HMH Journeys reading series, this vocabulary power point is for you. I created this power point to make introducing the weekly vocabulary words to my class a bit more exciting. This presentation is to be used with Unit 1 Lesson 1: A Fine, Fine School. I am a firm believer in allowing my students many opportunities to share their thinking with a partner, so I included opportunities for a "turn and talk" slide for each word. This presentation includes the rules for "turn and talk", parts of speech, kid-friendly definition, pictures, sentences, discussion questions throughout, and an interactive review/game at the end. Each slide comes with colorful animations to make the presentation more exciting for your students. I hope you enjoy this freebie!! More presentations for Unit 1 coming soon so please check back!
