This paint strip style PowerPoint introduces the concept of having different shades of meaning of a word and then allows students to practice with their own examples (followed by 10 quiz questions at the end).
It's great to follow up with actual paint strips and have students create their own "shades" of meaning strip!
The slides include:
1. Quick Teach/Intro- Introducing that different words have different "shades of meaning" by using the word "said" as an example (shown in the preview). Students break down 5 different sentences to figure out which word would be more specific and accurate instead of "said".
2. White Board Practice- Practicing their own with the words threw, jump, and 2 sets of move. Each slide contains 5 sentences per word, so there are a total of 20 practice sentences.
3. A Vocab Array- arranging words onto a line to show order through the shades of meaning. Students sort words for cold (least cold to most cold- cool, chilly, cold, freezing, frigid) and small (microscopic, miniscule, miniature, tiny, small).
4. Interactive Quiz to Check Understanding- 10 practice multiple choice questions asking for shades of meaning for "move"
