This PowerPoint accompanies the Units of Study Mystery Reading Unit for 3rd Grade. The slides tell you what to say in each mini-lesson and have images on the slides to engage the students. It is very specific so you can pretty much know what to say without reading the manual. However, you will need to have the manual to do all the activities that go with the lessons. The mini-lessons follow the Teachers College architecture of a mini-lesson including the connection, teaching point, teach, active engagement, and link. This PowerPoint is teacher-tested. I made it to help myself teach and am sharing it with you. I do not mass produce PowerPoints, but only share things I make for myself and use in my classroom.
