Is your classroom 1:1, or close to it? Maybe you need a product to use in the computer lab, while still being rigorous enough to meet the standards? This product is for you my friend!
You will love this passage about the country of Ireland, PERFECT for your St. Patrick's day lesson theme. Much more than leprechauns and rainbows and perfect for grades 3-5! Students will be scaffolded through the close reading steps, which will help them SLOW DOWN and really think about the text as they are reading. There are text boxes provided for students to type in their thinking as they are reading as well.
Once students have finished the first two steps in the close reading process (step one: get the gist, step two: dig deeper with scaffolded chunking and text connections), they will then respond to the text using text-based evidence questions and higher order thinking questions. Finally, they will respond to the text using creative thinking skills and making a connection to the text as they imagine that they are an Irish student describing daily life in a writing prompt.
ALL of this - WITH NO PAPER! Woo Hoo! We have gone very close to paperless in my classroom and I LOVE IT! My students love interacting with the slides, and love that I can comment on their work and check in real-time. I was a bit skeptical at first with my third graders, but it has been AMAZING!
With the purchase of this product, you will receive a LINK to the google slides presentation that I have created with text boxes for your students to type in directly. You as the purchaser, as well as the student will NOT be able to manipulate the other items. You can however delete slides to meet your needs, as you will have a master copy in your own drive.
Detailed instructions are provided in the purchase, but PLEASE let me know if you need help implementing this in your classroom. You can also visit my blog (www.teacherstale.com) where I will be uploading a video to show you how to use this product the most effectively.
AGAIN - this product IS NOT FOR PRINTING - this is a google slides presentation. You will receive a link to this product to download in your own google drive account (this is free). You may print the slides, however, they are NOT formatted for paper (detailed in product guide).
As a new seller, I am always open to suggestions. Please email me or use the Q and A tab to get in contact.
