I created these Google slides to use in my independent groups during my rotations. The words are from Journeys Grade 5 curriculum. For each slide presentation, there are 3 activities for each lesson 1-25. I assign the slides to each student in Google classroom and have them complete it during their groups. You could also do it whole group through your Google drive if you do not use Google classroom.
Here is more about each activity:
- The first activity is always to click and drag the words into alphabetical order.
-The second activity changes for each unit. To begin simply for the students, in Unit 1, they are simply using their books to find the page number each vocabulary word is listed. Unit 2 asks students to use the glossary in the book to type the definition of 5 words they choose. For Unit 3, the students have to use images to find a picture that matches 5 words they pick. For Unit 4, the students have to write a sentence for 5 words, and for Unit 5 there is a graphic organizer to complete for 2 words.
- The third activity changes for each lesson. I have included tasks such as filling in the blanks using the words, sorting the words between synonyms/ antonyms/ homophones, riddles, "because sentences," answering questions based on their words, and more! Some of these activities were suggestions listed in the Journeys Vocabulary curriculum.
