This 46 slide powerpoint can be used to teach the 9 vocabulary words for Houghton Mifflin's Theme 2 Selection 2 story for 5th grade, La Bamba. Each word has a separate slide for word, definition, pictures, sentence, and antonyms/synonyms. Slides are created with custom animation so words fly in and out with your mouse click. This can be used as a full vocabulary lesson or can be divided up into short mini-lessons. Great for English Language Learners that need extra support with vocabulary. Our students always tested very well on vocabulary when using the powerpoint. Other similar powerpoints available from Kimberly Gallo for the different themes and selections!
