This is a 81-slide PowerPoint which features 45 challenging vocabulary words that are on-level with the S.A.T. (Examples include: Ubiquitous, Pristine and Acquiesce). Included are Frayers (graphic organizers) to fill in (Task Cards) which are perfect if using the PowerPoint as Bell Ringers.
Set #2 is for the second quarter of school (one each day for 9 weeks).
Check out the feedback for Set #1:
Set 1 Word of the Day: Preparing for the S.A.T.
One slide shows the word, definition and sentence. The second slide shows a picture representation of the word and another example sentence. (All pictures are Ox and Emu original drawings.)
Although entitled “Word of the Day,” teachers may choose to show one word per week- or five words at a time (for a unit study).
When I started using these with my 14 year old son, his twin siblings wanted to join. The twins are 10 years younger- not even in first grade- but they LOVED playing with the flashcards we made.Now in middle school, they have a solid working knowledge of most of the 200+ words we used. They often refer to the pictures before anything else. (“Mom, remember the flashcard with the really fat cat? What was the word for that?” Answer: Corpulent)
I love vocabulary, but have found that teaching 20 vocabulary words per week is not nearly as effective as teaching one word per day. This is a perfect activity for a bell ringer. Students sit down, pull out the printed graphic organizer (in the form of a Frayer) and begin writing down the information displayed on the PPT.
This product includes the PowerPoint to show each day (perfect to display as the bell ringer!) and a graphic organizer/ task card/ Frayer for each S.A.T. featured word.
