This is a PowerPoint that includes 5 vocabulary words with pictures and definitions, 5 high frequency words with a picture and 5 tricky words that are decoded to show phonics skills. At the end there are slides with the vocabulary word covered so students can guess the word based on the definition. They are followed by slides that include the word, definition and picture.
The words in this PowerPoint come from Julius, a story in the Houghton Mifflin basal series for second grade.
This supplement to the story can be used daily to increase retention of phonics skills, vocabulary definitions and high frequency words in the story.
