This Power Point Set was developed to expose fifth grade students to vocabulary contained within and connected to Texas fifth grade math TEKS. It contains 2 full 26 slide power points featuring all the vocabulary words listed below.
One slide show includes definitions, pictures, and vocabulary words. The other contains the pictures and words but has the definitions removed for display on word wall compliant with Sheltered Instruction.
The slides are kept intentionally simple with white backgrounds so that they are printer friendly for word walls.
This Power Point focuses on the new math TEKS 5.3H Adding and Subtracting Fractions with Unlike Denominators. I have used this format successfully in my own classroom and have found it to be very beneficial for ELLs.
Vocabulary words featured are:
Greatest Common Factor (GCF)
Identity Property of Multiplication
Least Common Multiple (LCM)
Least Common Denominator (LCD)
When starting a new TEK require your students to copy the TEK into their math journals from the first slide. Discuss what the students will be learning based on the TEK.
Have students copy each vocabulary word and definition into their journals, and then have them create their own drawing to go with the word.
Print out the slides in full page format to use on your word wall and display prominently.
*Print slides in 3 slide format and use the lines to the side for students own notes about that word
*Print in 6 slide format on cardstock for vocabulary review centers
