These PowerPoints are designed to support instruction for Module 1, Unit 1, Lessons 1-8 for FIRST GRADE of Expeditionary Learning (or EL Education).
I've included slides to help guide through all the important points of the lessons, including learning targets. All slides were made with first grade students in mind, they have minimal text unless the text is necessary for students to read. Some slides are animated to draw attention to focus words, but I'm all about a "less is more" approach to PowerPoints. When word wall cards are included, I've included these as extra slides at the end of the presentation for you to print up and use.
If you want to print some slides for anchor charts but don't have a color printer, don't worry! I've included printer friendly (black and white) versions of slides that double as anchor charts. If you can't print from the color PowerPoint, you can print from these.
I've included important information in the 'Notes' section as well.
Each presentation is about 12 slides long, a couple are a little longer.
**Please Note I have made a modification to Lesson 4. Instead of beads in the cup for the Tool Challenge, I put pompoms, since they are quieter and easy to obtain.
I have purchased them in the past from Dollar Tree.
There are 8 PowerPoints zipped together in this file, so be sure you have a way of opening Zip files before purchasing. All PowerPoints are saved in pptx version.
