What's included:

★ 10 'drag and drop' style slides

★ 10 'add text' style slides

★ Versions for Seesaw (10 activities with one of each type of slide) and Google Slides

★ Instructions for use pages

This resource is perfect for:

Teacher instruction

Individual student work

What others are saying:


Loved how some slides provide support while other slides allow for more independence for students can write detailed sentences.

I can't tell you how helpful this resource was with my struggling writers. Even when non-ESOL students write, they forget to think about or don't want to think at all the things a sentence needs. Thanks so much!
