This is a Power Point vocabulary visual preview for the book The Hundred Penny Box by Sharon Bell Mathis. I made this to provide visual and linguistic vocabulary support for English Language Learners in my classroom. I preview it before reading the book to increase comprehensible input (a SIOP strategy). For most words, I provide two different visuals and a simple, student-friendly definition so that ELLs don't latch onto the wrong meaning.
For English language learners (ELLs), vocabulary development is especially critical for their ability to read and comprehend texts. The selection of vocabulary words to teach ELLs can be grouped into three tiers. The words and phrases here are a thoughtful mix of tier 1, tier 2, and tier 3 words. Since this is a longer read-aloud book, I have broken it up into two sections: Part 1 (to about page 25) and Part 2: (about page 25 to the end). The words and phrases previewed here with visuals and simple definitions are:
Part 1: miserable, drown, record player, moment, impatient, furnace
Part 2: desperate, irritable, mahogany, stumble, stubborn, murmur
