These 115 Smartboard slides follow days one through five of the Common Core aligned Journeys (Houghton Mifflin) program for first grade. We developed these slides to help "streamline" our week and keep us on pace as we taught the program. More importantly, they're beneficial in promoting student motivation through interactions with the Smartboard. We also found it very helpful to have all Journeys resources in one document (workbook pages, decodable reader, projectables, phonics cards, etc) We've used these for two years and can't imagine teaching reading without using them as a supplemental tool!! Each Lesson includes:
*The essential question
*High Frequency Words
*The decodable reader (including all as projectables)
*Several interactive internet resources a week.
*Daily worksheet pages
These slides are meant to support instruction and make pacing easier. We hope you find them useful!
