This complete zip-compressed set of Wonders spelling shows covers a whole unit, weeks 1-5, for a total of 5 PowerPoint presentations (Smart Start and review weeks/words are not included). Each show presents all eight new spelling words each week in an engaging and often humorous way. Each show begins with a spelling word presented one letter at a time for students to spell out loud and then say the word. Then the word spins and can be read again. Then the target word is used in a sentence with an engaging animation. After the spelling and sentences, the words are presented again for reading out loud. In the second part of each show, ideas from the unit are presented through photographs. This helps to solidify the unit concepts and introduce vocabulary and reading practice. High frequency words from each weakly unit are used throughout the presentation. At the end of each show, a comparison between real and not real is presented to help student distinguish real from pretend. I show the presentations several times a week. The first time, I model the words and sentences for the students. Each show is less than four minutes long (without discussion), so are easy to fit into your whole group instruction routine. Some slides even include notes of explanation to jump start conversations. Enjoy!
