Balanced Literacy for the Primary Grades

★ This 30 slide PowerPoint Balanced Literacy presentation describes all of the components I use to provide young learners with an effective balanced literacy program.

★ I have described all of the components that I always include in my classroom during my many years of teaching. My daughters and I are all teachers. The photographs in the presentation are of the actual procedures used in my classroom with one of my daughters teaching during an internship with me. I hope you find these activities helpful!

I periodically update this file, so please check your MY PURCHASES tab from time to time to download newer versions of the presentation free of charge. Thank you...

★ In addition to the explanations, I have placed links to actual materials you can purchase to use if you decide to implement any of these ideas.

★ If you are interested in further information or materials for any of the components, please contact me through Teachers Pay Teachers or at lindapost.edu@gmail.com I am in the process of creating more of the actual materials to post on TPT. I will update the file each time I add to it, so that you can download this presentation again for free under your MY PURCHASES tab. Thank you...
