YES!!! The second edition of the English Language Arts PowerPoint Workbook is available. So far, I have designed two for this new school year. So, please check out the first edition.
The English Language Arts PowerPoint Workbook was designed to be used at the end of the school day. That is why I call it Sunset. All teachers need uninterrupted time to complete important tasks while students are working on ELA skills. Just upload this PowerPoint workbook in class and BAM!
In this component, number two, students will complete assignments in a myriad of writing skills, which are interconnected to reading. Some assignments are antonyms, synonyms, homographs, and capitalization, to name a few.
To implement each lesson, introduce the topic and go over directions. Inform students of their time limit. I suggest from 15 minutes on up. However, you are the one who should really make that decision. Also, students can work in groups. It's your time. You make the best decision.
You don't have to go in order. You select the assignment based on how much time you need to complete important tasks - changing bulletin boards, preparing new lessons, correcting papers, getting ready for parent teacher conferences, writing notes to send home...must I go on? You certainly get the point. I was there, so I know that teachers need time, just like everyone else.
I suggest using the ELA Sunset PowerPoint Workbook once or twice a week. Every teacher needs at least one day a week to unwind and get things caught up, and students certainly need ongoing practice in ELA skills. The more practice, the more progress students will experience. And the more time teachers have to keep things organized, their classrooms will maintain quality status.
Answer keys are available for your convenience.
Enjoy your sunset moment.
With you in mind,
