Today’s Vocabulary Word Focus comes from…

Notice the word “stamina”

Let’s read the second bullet on this page

slide20

Vocabulary Word

Focus:

“stamina”

stamina– the energy and strength to keep doing something for a long time

Because soccer involves a lot of running, it is a sport that requires stamina, or the energy and strength, to run for a long time.

slide21

Activities, like soccer, require physical stamina – the energy and strength to play, exercise, or work for a long time. Runners and other athletes need physical stamina to run for long distances or play an entire game. Construction workers need physical stamina to work all day lifting and carrying building materials.

slide22

Other activities require mental stamina – the energy or brain power to think or concentrate for a long time. Students need mental stamina to read, listen, and learn all day. Surgeons need mental stamina to concentrate when they are performing long surgeries.

  • Think – Pair - Share
  • When have you needed physical or mental stamina to do something?

Our Last Vocabulary Word Focus

Soccer fans are excited about the growing popularity of their favorite sport, but they have a complaint.

slide25

Soccer fans are dissatisfied with the television coverage that soccer receives.

Let’s read the second sentence in this paragraph.

slide26

Vocabulary Word

Focus:

“dissatisfied”

dissatisfied– not satisfied or happy with the way things are

When you are dissatisfied, you want something more or something different. Soccer fans want more television coverage of soccer. They are dissatisfied with the current coverage.

dissatisfied

Look at the word dissatisfied.

  • Notice “dis-” in the word.
  • “dis-” is a prefix (a group of letters that is added to the beginning of a word and changes the meaning of the word)
  • Prefix “dis-” means not or the opposite of
dissatisfied

So when you add the prefix dis- to the word satisfied, it makes the word dissatisfied, which means not satisfied or happy with the way things are.

dissatisfied1
dissatisfied

Dissatisfied and satisfied have the opposite meanings.

Words with opposite meanings are called antonyms

slide29

Dissatisfied means you are not satisfied. I went to a restaurant and I was dissatisfied with the service. The server never refilled my water and did not bring any rolls out after we asked for some.

  • Think – Pair - Share
  • When have you felt dissatisfied? Why?
what s the word we re learning that s the antonym of satisfied
What’s the word we’re learning that’s the antonym of satisfied?
