PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This PowerPoint features 45 challenging vocabulary words that are prep your students for the S.A.T.

Set #3 is for the third quarter of school (one each day for 9 weeks). Check out the feedback on 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 original drawings by P B and J Clips.)

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.

As a bonus, I’ve added a “Adopt a Word Graphic Organizer for Vocabulary.” Students fill in the word, definition, and example sentences of one very special word that they will “adopt” all year long (like a flour baby…). My students love this activity and take ownership of their word AND teach it to their friends! If using the Adopt-A-Word, I suggest to do this activity FIRST. Students love to see when "their" word is the word of the day!

Thanks!
