Vocabulary Building for Pig the Pug series by Aaron Blabey
Vocabulary building is key for the development of reading skills. This PowerPoint highlights key words and phrases in a collection of Aaron Blabey's books. Pig the Pug books by Aaron Blabey are full of humor and rich vocabulary. This PowerPoint presents many of the vocabulary words and phrases in the Pig the Pug series and provides definitions, examples and illustrations that will help your students understand the text as you read. Showing the PowerPoint prior to reading will give students a clearer understanding as you read the story to them. You can allow students to share in pairs or small groups what they know about the words as you present them. We had our students give us a thumbs up, as we read the story, whenever they heard a word that was on the slide show and this method kept the students engaged in the reading. Books included in this slide show are Pig the Pug, Pig the Winner, Pig the Elf, Pig the Fibber, Pig the Star, Pig the stinker, and Pig the Tourist.
