Point of View

Students will practice point of view vocabulary:  1st person, 3rd person limited, 3rd person objective, 3rd person omniscient, point of view

There are flashcards, learning sentences, speller, test, and even a scatter game.  These links are on the top of the game screen.  I don’t recommend the Space Race game.

There are motion and audio controls on the right side of the flashcard practice.  Students can choose to flip vocab card to show definition on one side and word on the other or have both word and definition visible. When playing the learn game, students have options to see term first or speak text. On the speller part, students can hear the word, read the definition or clue, and then type in the word. The test part has 3 fill in, 3 multiple choice, and 3 true/false.  It can be printed.  Students click on answer box to check responses.  They can test again. The last part is called Scatter.  It is a slide and match game.  When word and clue are correct the bubbles go together and then disappear. It is timed and students can replay for a better score.

Transitional Words "Glue" Video


Balloon Joining


Transitional Words Quizlet

Students should start by watching the 2 minute video on transitional words.


Students should then play the Balloon Joining Game.  This is very basic and the students should be able to complete it fairly quickly.  This game would be especially helpful for ELL and students with difficulty reading.

Students should then play the quizlet game.  This is more advanced and the students could struggle with some of these transitional words.  They should learn the words, then practice using the practice, play scatter, then take the test.  IF they struggle too much, they should go back to the balloon joining game.

January 26th Scholastic Study Jams Unlike Denominators

Students should click “step by step” and read along with the tutorial for adding unlike fractions.  They will occasionally need to press “show me” to advance the animation.  This should take about 10 minutes.

When finished with the tutorial the students should select the second link (it is the same as the first) and this time choose “test yourself.”  Students should then take the quiz (they may need pencil and paper) and show the teacher when they have at least 6/7 questions correct.
