This is an introduction PowerPoint to any Wordly Wise 3000 Grade 8 unit. Although the workbook saves the passage until the end of the unit, I use the passage twice. This lesson exposes students to the words in context and then they will come back to the passage again to answer the questions after completing Lessons A-D.
The PowerPoint includes SQP2RS reading strategy, collaborative learning strategies, formative assessments embedded into the lesson, and learning targets for the students to reflect on at the end of the class.

My WordlyWise units follow this format:
1. Introduction: Read the passage (Lesson E) to see the vocabulary words in context and predict vocabulary words.
2. Mini-Lessons: I define 3 words a day.
3. Practice Activities: Activities to go along with Lessons A-E
