The Cricket In Times Square Vocabulary Introduction Powerpoint.
First page discussion of genre of story.
Each vocabulary word is introduced with a picture, word, and no definition. Students make an inference about the meaning of the word based upon the picture. The page after the picture has the definition.
At the end is a short quiz that is meant to review the terms and their definitions and can be used as an assessment. The last page has fireworks graphics and sounds to celebrate student success.
I have used these for many years. The students remember this vocabulary and are very engaged.
words included in this Power Point : wistfully, scrounging, acquaintance, excitable, eavesdropping, sympathetically, logical
