Using the vocabulary and spelling words from Benchmark Advance, I created this power point in order to introduce each week's words to my students. Using sentences from the text as well as created sentences, students are shown the words in context and given description as to why each definition is correct. I use these power points throughout the week during our computer station. Students can also work together to practice the vocabulary words while viewing the power points. Using the words in context and having each meaning explained helps initiate conversations and a deeper understanding of the word meanings.
