Are you teaching with NYS EngageNY curriculum that was created by Expeditionary Learning???
If so, these powerpoints are a HUGE must-have time saver for your daily prep! Just print out the student handouts, project the PowerPoint and teach!
**AND for those with copy limits or just hate that daily battle over the copier: The way the presentations are organized, you can simply have students quickly draw their graphic organizers and record their answers in a ELA notebook). Guided notes with minimal prep, right at your fingertips!
If you're familiar with the curriculum you know it packs a LOT of learning in a 60 minute block. These PowerPoints help you stay on pace with your lesson and are a huge help to those visual learners and those students who frequently get off-task and need re-direction. Having clear directions and next steps means no questions of "Wait...What do we do again?" :)
This module was created for 3rd grade, however can work in a 4th and even 5th grade classroom, especially at the beginning of the year. These modules have also been used with success in middle remediation and/or ESL interventions.
*Adorable fonts have been embedded into the presentation, so even if you don't have them, they will show up in PowerPoint.
