*This Power Point Set was developed to expose fourth grade students to vocabulary contained within and connected to Texas fourth grade math TEKS. It contains a 20 slide power point featuring all the vocabulary words listed below. The slides are kept intentionally simple with white backgrounds so that they are easy to read and printer friendly for word walls.
*The first half of the slide show includes definitions, pictures, and vocabulary words.
*The second half contains the pictures and words but has the definitions removed for display on word wall compliant with Sheltered Instruction.
*This Power Point focuses on the new math TEKS 4.2G relate decimals to fractions. I have used this format successfully in my own classroom and have found it to be very beneficial for ELLs.
Vocabulary words featured are:
Decimal and Fraction Models
When starting a new TEKS require your students to copy the TEKS into their math journals from the first slide. Discuss what the students will be learning based on the TEKS.
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 card stock for vocabulary review centers
