This is a set of 15 vocabulary strategy warm-up activities. Each of the 15 lessons is composed of 2 slides--one with a paragraph with a highlighted word and the second with the definition and a quick activity for students to use the word to reinforce understanding. This is set 2 of 4.
Hint: I always start by reviewing how to break the word into syllables to build higher-level decoding skills. Have students generate ideas on meaning using context clues and other vocabulary strategies before verifying. Students in my class keep a notebook with each meaning and follow-up.
